PHO­TOG­RA­PHY CEN­TRE

The V&A’s pho­tog­ra­phy gal­leries have scrubbed up a treat, re­tain­ing their Vic­to­rian am­bi­ence while pro­vid­ing a post-In­sta­gram his­tory of the medium. With high­lights on show from the 400,000 items the mu­seum has newly ac­quired from the Royal Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety, it’s a trib­ute to the time­less phys­i­cal beauty of a great pho­to­graph.
