British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The V&A Museum, London, has announced its 2022-2023 programme. Of particular interest to the photography world are new photography displays although photography will feature in exhibition highlights including Beatrix Potter: Drawn to NatureFashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear, and Africa Fashion. 

In November 2021 the Photography Centre will be entirely rehung with two new displays: 

  • Maurice Broomfield: Industrial Sublime in The Bern and Ronny Schwartz Gallery. The exhibition will showcase the late photographer’s spectacular photographs of mid-century British industry,
  • Known and Strange: Photographs from the Collection in The Sir Elton John and David Furnish Gallery 6 November 2021-6 November 2022 will focus on the contemporary – highlighting photography’s power to transform the familiar into the unfamiliar, and the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Phase 2 of the Photography Centre is due to open in 2023.
