DISPLAY: Since the invention of photography, the camera has focused on the body as a subject of both artistic expression and scientific examination. In the 19th century, photographic representations of the nude were heavily influenced by the stylistic conventions of painting and sculpture. Over time photographers created a new visual language, exploring themes such as sexuality, beauty, growth and ageing. Today, images of the body still have the power to inform, shock and seduce.

Displays complement our permanent collections; there are many free temporary displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
