Snap – Friday 26 October

In collaboration with i-D

In our digital age, every second of the day is captured on camera by us and others – every moment of success, every mistake, every blemish, every smile. Our lives are a catalogue – whether in feeds or in photo albums, we capture and curate our worlds through the amassing and sharing of pictures. This Friday Late, the V&A are joined by i-D to explore how we create, collect, and preserve moments in the click of a shutter.
