Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
This two-day symposium will feature presentations by experts from England, France, and across the United States. Topics will include the art form’s early patronage by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the reasons why collectors of American Modernism also collected photographs, photography’s changing fortunes on the art market, and its legitimization as a collectable category in the fine arts. The symposium will conclude with an interview of a major collector of photography today.
The speakers include, from the UK, Dr Sophie Gordon, Philippe Garner and Marta Weiss.
