"Aspects of Architecture"
2004-09-22 until 2005-01-15
Sheffield Galleries and Museum Trust, Graves Art Gallery
Sheffield, , UK United Kingdom

An exhibition of architectural photographs will be the next in a series of exhibitions organised by Sheffield Galleries & Museums Trust, in partnership with the V&A. Around 50 stunning works, taken from the V&A Photography Collection and Sheffield City Collections, will be on display at the Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield from 22 September 2004 - 22 January 2005.

Aspects of Architecture will be displayed in four sections: Making the Record, Construction, Looking in Detail and Architecture as Art. The images on display will range from Stonehenge, the Millennium Dome and the construction of the Paris Opera House, to Sheffield's Castle Market, taken by leading photographers including Bill Brandt, Walker Evans and Roger Fenton. The exhibition will also include work by Japanese artist, Naoya Hatakeyama, recently acquired by V&A. This piece will receive its world premier in Sheffield.

Bill Brandt was perhaps Britain's greatest 20th century photographer. Throughout the 1930s and 40s he contributed reportage to various illustrated magazines, including Picture Post and Lilliput, and his work has been highly influential on generations of British photographers. William Eggleston set the precedent for colour documentary and art photography over the last 20 years. Walker Evans is one of the most celebrated American photographers and Roger Fenton was a key figure in the first generation of photographers, having worked as the official photographer of the Crimean War and the Royal Family.
