British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The Royal Photographic Society has honoured photography curators Els Barents, Maria Morris Hambourg and Roger Hargreaves at its annual Awards ceremony held last week. Els received the Colin Ford Award (seen right) which recognises a major contribution to curatorship. She is the recently retired director of the Huis Marseille Museum for Photography in Amsterdam.

Maria (below, left) received the Society's Outstanding Service Award particularly recognising her role at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Roger (below, right) has worked at the NPG, curated many photography shows and currently works with the Archive of Modern Conflict. 

In addition Paul Goodman, formerly at the National Media Museum, received the Society's Fenton Medal for his work at the museum on behalf of the Society's Collection which is housed there.
