Some of the most influential artists and photographers of the past 50 years have come from the British Isles.

Subversive artists such as Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and Banksy are credited with shocking and shaking up the art world. Now such pieces as Emin’s My Bed, Hirst’s shark preserved in formaldehyde, and any of Banksy’s spray-painted canvas are considered iconic and have sold for millions of pounds.

The UK capital is one of the dominant forces in the world’s contemporary art market, second only to New York. Its collections are the envy of the world. Three of the top 10 most visited art museums on the planet are in London: the British Museum, Tate Modern and the National Gallery.

London has also produced household-name photographers including legendary portrait photographer David Bailey, renowned fashion photographer Nick Knight, and award-winning photojournalist Don McCullin.
