A History of Photography: Selections from the Museum’s Collection is a series of installations that trace the course of photography from its invention to the present day, showcasing important new acquisitions and treasured masterpieces.
Every six months, a new selection of photographs, drawn from the rich collection the Museum has built over the past half century, presents the medium’s history in a slightly different light. In this way, an increasingly complex picture of photographic history emerges, encouraging visitors to look closely, move slowly, and return for more.
Each new installation also includes a focused look at the work of a single artist held in depth by the Museum, plus a selection of photographically illustrated books highlighting the key role that publications have played in the development of the medium.
