Although it took quite a while for photography to be considered art, the Gallery has supported the medium ever since its landmark exhibition of pictorial photography in 1910. Photography Since 1970, Parts 1 and 2 will consider the many different themes explored in contemporary photography and the wide variety of ways artists present them. These lectures will explore works featuring landscapes, urban scenes, interiors, images of individuals and groups, and political and social commentary.
