Work from Associate Professor in Photography, Mark Edwards, is being shown in the V&A’s display Into the Woods: Trees in Photography
Mark said “I am thrilled to be part of this beautiful and thoughtful display. It is both interesting and exciting to see my picture within such historical and contemporary contexts charting not only the depiction of trees in photography but also the breadth of the V&A’s and Royal Photographic Society’s collections.”
Trees were among the first photographic subjects collected by the V&A and have long been a source of inspiration for artists. The museum describes Into the Woods: Trees in Photography as ‘a display exploring the diverse representation of trees in photography – as botanical subjects and poetic symbols, in the context of the natural and human worlds.’
The display will be the first that draws on works from both the recently transferred Royal Photographic Society (RPS) collection and the V&A permanent photographs collection ahead of the opening of their new Photography Centre in 2018.
Into the Woods: Trees in Photography is at the V&A until Sunday 22 April 2018
