Free entry for Members

Man Ray Glass Tears (Les Larmes) 1932 Collection Elton John © Man Ray Trust/ADAGP, Paris and DACS, London 2016

Iconic photographs from one of the world’s greatest private collections

This major exhibition presents an unrivalled selection of classic modernist images from the 1920s to the 1950s – a crucial moment in the history of photography. In this period of rapid change, photography offered a new means to communicate and represent the world. Street life and the modern metropolis were explored through the camera, while well-known genres such as the portrait, nude and still life were reimagined. 

Featuring over 150 rare vintage prints, the exhibition offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see remarkable works by seminal figures such as Man Ray, André Kertész, Berenice Abbott, Alexandr Rodchenko and Edward Steichen, telling the story of photography from the period for the first time in the UK
