At the LHC, in ultra-peripheral heavy-ion collisions the highly boosted electromagnetic field of the Pb ions represents a source of quasi-real photon. Vector meson photo-production measurements in p-Pb (Pb-Pb) collisions are sensitive to the gluon parton distribution functions in the proton
(nucleus). LHCb results on charmonium production in ultra-peripheral p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions will be presented.
