posted in: News | 0

Photo London 2023 will be showing their new exhibition called Writing Her Own Script: Women Photographers from the Hyman Collection, to take place at Somerset House, Embankment West Gallery. From 10th to 14th May

The exhibition includes work by a number of female photographers including Shirley Baker, Dorothy Bohm, Helen Chadwick, Linda McCartney, Jo Spence and many more.

‘Writing her own Script’ celebrates many of the pioneering women photographers at work in Britain over the last 100 years. It charts a course from the 1930s to the present and provides an overview of photography in Britain that focuses on two strands: a humanistic documentary tradition and a more personal, performative, practice. The exhibition takes its name from a large-scale photograph by Susan Hiller.

Comments James Hyman, Founding Director, Centre for British Photography: “Following the recent opening of the Centre for British Photography, we are delighted to have this opportunity to present an exhibition of works from the Hyman Collection and to spread the word about our activities. For many years we have been committed to supporting women working in photography, so we were pleased to be asked by Photo London to curate an exhibition that focuses on this important aspect of the collection.”
