Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The exhibition at Wolverhampton is made up of 43 pictures from three decades and 18,000 archival black and white negatives.
It comprises "snapshots of life" as seen through Pogus Caesar's eyes, in the vein of photojournalism, but it is also a snapshot of a body of work, hinting at the greater detail of his lens-shaped life.
The pictures strikingly chart Caesar's travels to Latin America, Africa, Eastern Europe and the States - and, taken as a whole, reveal his beguiling and distinctive eye to be part documentarian and part paparazzo, contrarily observational and intrusive at one and the same time.
