Because of its very high energies and luminosity the  Large Hadron Collider  could also be called the Large Photon Collider.  In this talk I will discuss photon nucleus, photon proton and photon-photon collisions at the LHC.  Such collisions serve as very clean probes for the hadron wave-function and have excellent sensitivity to new phenomena in both QCD and electroweak physics.
