Photographer James Sparshatt and businessman Ken Climie set up Capital Culture in 2003. Their main aim was to focus on and work alongside a small group of great artists who share a fascination in the people, places and cultures of the world.
We are based at Gunpowder House, Southwark, London where we have a studio space to meet people and show work (mostly by appointment). We participate in a number of art fairs all over the world and try to put on several exhibitions in the UK every year. We're really pleased to work alongside a number of charities for some of our events such as the IMC and Art for Africa.
