07 January 2010 - 16 May 2010
V&A+RIBA Architecture Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Drawing on the V&A's rich holdings of 19th century photographs, this display examines the relationship that developed between photography and architectural practice in the 19th century and explores how photography facilitated the rediscovery of an idealised past. The display also addresses the role played by photography in the recording of buildings before demolition and its use as a tool for preserving the national architectural heritage.
Admission is free.
The V&A is open daily 10.00am–5.45pm, Fridays 10.00am – 10pm.
