One of the modules from my master’s program in Photographic History focuses on the History of Photography, Images and Practice. In the frames of this module, our class visited the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford, United Kingdom this past week. There we were given a tour of the museum’s Insight: Collections and Research Centre by Greg Hobson, Curator of Photographs. Also, with the assistance of Colin Harding, Curator of Photographic Technology, we were able to choose a photographic object which we will use as a primary source in our research for the module’s assignment.
I am grateful I had the opportunity to see this rich and historically valuable collection of photographic materials in person.
