Course: Investigating the Archives: Photographic Collections of London

From the collections of the V&A and Royal Anthropological Institute to those at local libraries and in professional archives such as Magnum Photos, London plays host to a surprising variety of often unknown photographic collections and archives, all of which are kept for different purposes.

Using practical explorations, visits and thematic discussions this course arranged by the Photographers' Gallery and Birkbeck considers the histories, preservation, use and related issues involved in these fascinating archives.

There are nine sessions in total, from 8 January - 10 February 2011, with a combination of Saturday mornings, 10.30am-1.30pm, and weekday evenings, 6pm-8pm. Full dates to be announced.
