Collecting Photography/Photography as Collecting photo

From early daguerreotypes to contemporary digital images, explore the history of photography through the lens of collecting and consider photography itself as a way of collecting the universe. Discover the extraordinary breadth of the V&A’s photography collection, which has been growing and evolving since the 1850s, and was recently augmented by the transfer of the Royal Photographic Society collection.
