The Photographers' Gallery asks us to consider the photograph as object. We are asked to appreciate that some artists do things like expose photographs under water, or purposely damage their prints and negatives or even (as in one of Andy Warhol's less exciting interventions) literally stitch pictures together in a hopeless attempt to make them less dull.

Hidden away on the top floor of the gallery are 10 "Overpainted Photographs" by the German contemporary artist Gerhard Richter. As a selection, they are haphazard, but the opportunity to see any of these brilliant little things is too good to miss.
