Martin Barnes, senior curator of Photographs for the V&A wishes this state-of-the-art Photography Center to be “one of the few places in the world where a chronological history of the medium illustrated with original photographs, equipment and archive material can always be seen. We want to reach beyond restrictive definitions of photography to embrace the broader cultures of the medium. (…). We have exciting plans for the combined collections that celebrate the fine art of photography alongside its technology and look forward to working closely with the RPS on this.”
