As mentioned in an earlier blog
, to coincide with the opening of the new Galleries, details of the street photography exhibition based on the Museum's Historic Photographic Collection have been announced.
Entitled "London Street Photography", it showcases how street photography has changed over the years from 1860-2010. The collection offers a fascinating visual record of this great city - a true snapshot through time.
Drawing from about 200 photographs from the Collection, it includes works by notable photographers such as John Thomson, Henry Grant and Roger Mayne. All the photographs in the exhibition contain an element of chance - a defining characteristic of street photography. This is the first time street photography is explored exclusively in relation to London.
