— Art of Arrangement: Photography and the Still Life Tradition – Exhibition at The Holburne Museum now on until 7 May 2012

‘Art of Arrangement: Photography and the Still Life Tradition’ is a visually arresting exhibition that surveys the many ways in which photographers have explored still life.

This exhibition builds on the rich tradition, symbolic nature and history of still life. It considers the formal and aesthetic conventions photographers have used, and how they have been adapted and subverted to invest new meaning in the photograph.

 

Drawn exclusively from the National Media Museum Photography Collection, ‘Art of Arrangement: Photography and the Still Life Tradition’ includes photographs by Ansel Adams, Harold Edgerton, Roger Fenton, Edward Steichen, William Henry Fox Talbot and Madame Yevonde, as well as contemporary photographers such as Chris Killip and Don McCullin.
