Picture Post Exhibition
3 June - 5 July
Peltz Gallery, Birkbeck, University of London
Birkbeck has recently acquired a full run of the pioneering photo-magazine Picture Post, in unusually good condition. This will be the springboard for an exhibition devoted to Picture Post’s achievements and historical significance, focusing on the ways in which different waves of immigration (from the late 1930s to the late 1950s) were portrayed in its pages.
The exhibition is curated by Mike Berlin in collaboration with Amanda Hopkinson, and will be accompanied by a lively related events programme.
