Dorothea Lange / Vanessa Winship

A photography double bill

Opening times
Vanessa Winship and Dorothea Lange

A double bill of exhibitions featuring pioneering documentary photographer and visual activist, Dorothea Lange, and award-winning contemporary photographer, Vanessa Winship.

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.

Your ticket allows same-day entry to both exhibitions, on show at the same time in the Art Gallery.

 

Part of The Art of Change season, highlighting how artists respond to, reflect and potentially effect change in the social and political landscape.

No photography, food or drink is permitted in the gallery. Under 12s must be accompanied by an adult.

All bags are subject to search and large bags must be deposited in the cloakroom. You can find full details of our safety policy here.

This exhibition was made possible with a Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant from Art Fund.
