A BSL tour of our photography double bill, suitable for Deaf and hard of hearing visitors, led by John Wilson who will highlight key artworks on display in the exhibition.
Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing is the first UK retrospective of American photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965). Lange was a powerful woman of unparalleled vigour and resilience. Using her camera as a political tool to shine a light on cruel injustices, Lange went on to become a founding figure of documentary photography.
Vanessa Winship: And Time Folds is the first major UK solo exhibition of contemporary photographer and recipient of the prestigious Henri Cartier-Bresson prize in 2011, Vanessa Winship. This much overdue exhibition showcases over 150 photographs, uncovering the fragile nature of our landscape and society and exploring how memory leaves its mark.
