VR: Mat Collishaw's Thresholds at PhotoLondon

Photo London and Somerset House, in collaboration with Blain|Southern Gallery, presents Thresholds, a new virtual reality (VR) artwork by internationally acclaimed artist Mat Collishaw. Using the latest VR technology, Collishaw will restage Fox Talbot’s pioneering 1839 exhibition of photography. With the aid of  careful digital reconstructions, this immersive experience will enable visitors to travel back in time to the moment when British scientist William Henry Fox Talbot first presented his photographic prints to the public in Birmingham.

In addition to the Thresholds installation, Mat Collishaw will be taking part in the Fair's Talks Programme, discussing his practice with Dr James Hyman, gallerist and collector.

Places are limited for entry to the installation and talks.
