More on photographic centres

A postscript to the main article on “Imagining the Photography Centre of the Future”.


There’s a history of the Scottish National Photography Centre here. Its former chief executive Graeme Murdoch will talk at the Symposium.

An interesting story has also been mentioned on the difficulty of getting certain work seen in Britain: the exhibition A Ballad of Love and Death investigates the uniquely British phenomenon of Pre–Raphaelite Photography. It is on at the Musee D’Orsay in Paris at the moment, then moves to the US; but it will not be seen in the UK.

The same was true for the show Impressed by Light, on British Calotypes, curated by Roger Taylor of De Montfort University, Leicester. The book won the Kraszna-Krausz Award, and the exhibition showed in New York, Washington and Paris… but not the UK.
