Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The V&A Photographs department will be producing a display in Gallery 38A titled: The Camera Exposed. It will explore themes around the presence of ‘the camera’, or some trace of it, in photographs. Spanning the history of photography, the display will present works that explore this theme different ways, from photographers’ self-portraits with their cameras to more conceptual pieces. Artists featured include Charles Thurston Thompson, Lady Hawarden, Bill Brandt, Richard Avedon and Henri Cartier-Bresson.
