During the current Creative Photography Course at the V&A, designed and led by Kate Elliott, a group of students are working as Museum Photographers, to create a modern-day ‘portrait’ of the V&A.
Through class discussions, practical tasks and exhibition visits, the group are exploring a combination of architectural, portrait, documentary and reportage photography, to develop a collection of images that depict their individual views and interpretations of the building, its inhabitants, and activities and events that take place there.
Last week we shared a selection of photographs showcasing the building. This week we focus on people – the Museum Photographers themselves, along with other staff members, and visitors to the museum.
Full details of the project brief can be found in last week’s entry The Museum Photographers: Part 1 https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/news-learning-department/the-modern-day-museum-photographers . Watch out for our third and final post, culminating a V&A portrait by the Museum Photographers.
