Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Art Newspaper carries a fascinating Q&A with James Hyman where he talks about the 3000 strong Claire and James Hyman Collection of photography collectionand what might happen to it in the future, He makes a strident, but reasonable, call for a senior curator of British photography at Tate Britain to compliment Simon Baker, curator of international photography, at Tate Modern. He suggests that within the Tate staff there have shown a lack of interest in receiving the collection, although Nicholas Serota has been 'personally engaged'.
