History through a Lens: Iconic Photographs from the Incite Project

Tuesday, 4 April @ 12:30 - Tuesday, 9 May @ 17:00

This show focuses on iconic images and their power, profiling over 75 photographs that have changed public perception of world events. They have been selected from a collection that specialises in photojournalism and documentary photography. We are used to seeing these images in the press, in transient form, generally accompanied by columns of text, but the Incite Project treats them as works of art.

The core of the collection are the classics of 20th-century photojournalism that have become visual markers of a moment in time – the assassination of JFK, a rare shot of the Normandy D-Day landing, Nelson Mandela in his cell on Robben Island, to name but a few. The collection is also motivated by a passion to support the photographers and artists currently making extraordinary, thought-provoking images about contemporary issues.

Please note: This exhibition contains images of conflict which some visitors may find disturbing.
