Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

V&A Photography Gallery opens ......

To celebrate the annual re-display of V&A's permanent photography collection gallery, which also includes many recent acquisitions, the Museum held a special viewing on Friday (14th May). One of the highlights was the new display "The Other Britain Revisited: Photographs from New Society". This pioneering weekly publication was founded in 1962 and continued as an independent magazine until 1988.

The magazine carried a large number of illustrations and 'black & white' photographs. In doing so, it engaged with, and recognised early the talent of young British photojournalists such as Brian Griffin, Martin Parr, Chris Steele-Perkins and Homer Sykes - all of whose photographs are featured in this special exhibition. See 'Events' section for further info.
Well worth a visit !
