Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
We are looking for somebody who can take responsibility for the successful delivery of the [James] Fenton Collection Project. With the support of volunteers, this project aims to catalogue a significant photographic collection of 4,500 items, consisting of photographs, cameras, pre-cinema object and printed materials. All of this will be carried out in the public gallery to maximise our opportunity to engage with our audiences.
Visitors flock to this quirky 13th century abbey to enjoy the museum dedicated to photographic pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot. Outdoor theatre, photography exhibitions and family trails are among the innovative events run by the 40 staff members and local volunteers, making for a lively and fun visitor experience. It’s likely you will need your own transport to get here, however this is a great opportunity to join a welcoming team and contribute to an exciting programme of events.
