The V&A was the first museum to collect the art of photography and is world-renowned for its expertise in this field. The V&A Photographs Acquisition Group was founded to support the V&A’s photographic collections.
Support from the Group plays a vital role in helping us to continue broadening our holdings, and has already enabled us to acquire a complete series of photographs by Yinka Shonibare, a themed collection of Robert Brownjohn’s work, and exquisite pieces by Josef Sudek, Denis Brihat, Jan Wenzel, Ori Gersht and Darren Harvey-Regan.
Supporters of the Photographs Acquisition Group share a passion for photography, and enjoy a close association with the V&A, our curators, and collection. The Photographs Acquisitions Group help decide how their contributions are allocated and also have the opportunity to visit studios and photography fairs with our curators.
This is a specialist group, giving an annual donation. For more information on how to get involved, please contact:
