A London photography studio used by photographer Patrick Lichfield, who died in 2005, will come back to life this month as a venue for international contemporary art.

Lord Lichfield died four years ago this month, aged 66.

They are open Mon-Fri 11am-6pm; and Sat noon-5pm (the studio is open 29 Nov-19 Dec by appointment only). The nearest Tube is Ladbroke Grove or Latimer Road.
