Investigating the Archives: Photographic Collections of London

From the collections at the V&A and Royal Anthropological Institute to those at local libraries and in the professional archives of Magnum Photos, London is host to a surprising variety of often unknown photographic collections and archives, all of which are kept for different purposes. Using practical explorations, a variety of classroom and site visits with thematic discussions, this course considers the histories, preservation, use and related issues involved in these fascinating collections. Visits include access to: Magnum Photos, The Weiner Library, The Royal Anthropological Institute, London Metropolitan Archives and the V&A Photography Collection. Organised and led by The Photographers' Gallery with Birkbeck College - 7 January to 4 February 2012
