Making It Up: Photographic Fictions
3 May 2013 - 19 March 2014
Photography, Room 38A
Photography is widely associated with truthfulness yet it has also been employed throughout its history as a means of telling stories and evoking the imaginary. This display includes photographs by some of the most influential contemporary artists working in this vein, such as Gregory Crewdson, Duane Michals and Cindy Sherman, alongside examples by 19th-century practitioners including Julia Margaret Cameron, Clementina Lady Hawarden and Oscar Gustav Rejlander.
Complementing our permanent collections, there are many free temporary displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
