Photography from the 60s and 70s

Gallery with blue walls and phtographs

This major exhibition surveyed the medium from an international perspective, featuring photographers from across the globe, all working during two of the most memorable decades of the 20th century

Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s brought together over 400 works, some rarely seen, others recently discovered and many shown in the UK for the first time. 

It featured 12 key figures including Bruce Davidson, William Eggleston, David Goldblatt, Graciela Iturbide, Boris Mikhailov, Sigmar Polke, Malick Sidibé, Shomei Tomatsu, and Li Zhensheng as well as important innovators whose lives were cut tragically short such as Ernest Cole, Raghubir Singh and Larry Burrows

The world changed dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s, it was the defining period of the modern age. It was also the moment when the medium flowered as a modern art form. 

Everything Was Moving: Photography from the 60s and 70s presented some of the most inspiring voices in 20th century photography, in order to reflect on the world then – and now.
