£100,000 grant for history of photography by children study

Dr Annebella Pollen has been awarded a £100,000 Philip Leverhulme Prize, which she will use to fund a new study into the history of photography by children from 1900. As a personal award rather than a research grant, the prize money can be used for any research purpose. Thirty prizes are awarded annually, to a changing group of six subject areas each year.

Dr Pollen, Director of the Centre for Design History, said: “I plan to use the fund to take extended research leave as well as to support the costs for a major new illustrated book and exhibition on photography by children from 1900 to the present. This draws on my long-standing interests in mass visual culture and its undervalued histories. To have two years to explore a substantial new area will be a huge privilege. I'm really looking forward to bringing to fruition ideas that I've been considering for some time but have not previously had the opportunity to pursue in depth."
