TJ Boulting was founded in 2011 by current Director Hannah Watson and the late Gigi Giannuzzi, taking its name from the landmark Grade II* listed Arts & Crafts building it inhabits in Fitzrovia, central London. The gallery represents a dynamic group of emerging and mid-career contemporary artists across all mediums, and introduces more established and historic artists through thematic group shows. These are often collaborations with invited curators, such as In The Company Of in 2018 with Katy Hessel, Birth in 2019 with Charlotte Jansen and The Gaze in 2021 with Louis Wise.
TJ Boulting has hosted the British Journal of Photography International Award since 2015, whose winners include Dominic Hawgood, Felicity Hammond, Juno Calypso, Daniel Castro Garcia and Jack Latham.
TJ Boulting is also the home of independent publisher Trolley Books. Established in 2001, Trolley publish a diverse range of titles presenting unique stories in photography, photojournalism and contemporary art. In 2005 Trolley received a special commendation from the Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards for its outstanding contribution to photography book publishing. Recent awards for the books include at the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards for Siân Davey's Looking For Alice (2016) and Maisie Cousins's Rubbish, Dipping Sauce, Grass Peonie Bum (2019).
