My Photographic Week – Day 2

17 February 2015

Region: London

London RO, Del Barrett ARPS, takes over the blog spot for a week.

The photographic highlight of Day 2 was attending the press view of Staying Power at the Victoria and Albert Museum.    

I'd read and heard quite a lot about this display before seeing it, and it certainly lived up to - if not exceeded - expectations.  Natasha Bennett will be writing a full review for the next issue of Capital Interest, so I’m not going to say much more here, other than get yourself down to the V&A! 

Staying Power:  Photographs of Black British Experience, 1950s -1990s runs from 16 February – 24 May 2015 at the V&A.
