Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
If you fancy a bit of detective work, then this might be up your street. You can roll up your sleeves and dig deep into the photo archives of the V&A, London Metropolitan Archives, the Wiener Library, the Royal Anthropological Institute and Magnum Photos with a course from the Photographers’ Gallery, starting in the new year.
This eight-week course (which by the way, will also contribute to Birkbeck College’s World Arts and Artefacts Certificate of Higher Education, and in turn could lead on to undergraduate and postgraduate study in art, humanities and museum studies) will mix site visits with classroom discussion and consider the histories, preservation, use and related issues involved in these fascinating collections.
PS. Apparently, the Photographers' Gallery on Ramilies Street is due to re-open in early 2012 - at long last!
