Event Description

an international perspective, and includes renowned photographers from across the globe, all working during two of the most memorable decades of the 20th century. Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s brings together over 400 works, some rarely seen, others recently discovered and many shown in the UK for the first time. 

It features 12 key figures including Bruce DavidsonWilliam Eggleston, David GoldblattGraciela Iturbide, Boris MikhailovSigmar Polke, Malick Sidibé, Shomei Tomatsu, and Li Zhensheng as well as important innovators whose lives were cut tragically short such as Ernest ColeRaghubir Singhand Larry Burrows

The world changed dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s. From the Cultural Revolution to the Cold War; from America’s colonialist misadventure in Vietnam to the indelible values of the civil rights movement; this was the defining period of the modern age. It also coincided with a golden age in photography: the moment when the medium flowered as a modern art form. 

Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s presents some of the most inspiring voices in 20th century photography, in order to reflect on the world then – and now.
