Martin Barnes, Senior Curator of Photographs at the Victoria & Albert Museum, will be at the Daniel Blau Gallery, London, on the 22nd of November to talk about the history of how the museum’s collection was formed and how that set the pattern for current collecting. He will discuss the ‘collecting plan’ and recent collecting initiatives, as well as what catches his eye personally, what he sees too much of and avoids, and what he is looking for in excellent photography that is right for a museum. This is a great opportunity to get a first hand insight into the workings of the V&A, which was the first museum to collect photography and exhibit it!

The talk starts at 6:30pm and the talk is open to everyone. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment, as numbers are limited.
