Since I visited London last, on my Birthday in May, I’ve been meaning to visit this exhibition. I wanted to go to the Natural History Museum in London, but I ran out of time and didn’t make it. Luckily Brighton Museum and Art Gallery also had this exhibition on. Yesterday I finally went there and had a look around. With a student discount I only had to pay £3 to get in. Mum, Stepdad and Fosterchild got a Family ticket and paid just over £10
Because we went on a Sunday, I expected a lot more people to be in the museum in general, but it wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be. We went around lunch time, so maybe that’s why. The museum itself is very interesting and currently has stuff on ancient Egypt and life in Brighton.
The photography exhibition was located upstairs, next to an area where they were selling cakes and coffees. I couldn’t find a lift going upstairs so stairs it was. If you’d need a lift, the staff there might be able to help.
Again, there weren’t many people and it was very quiet, contrasting to the amount of people in the Pavilion gardens. The pictures were simply amazing and had some details under each photo -photographer, technical details, location, etc. The print was rather small, but they had the same information in bigger print in booklets lying around (different booklets, different photos + information).
The exhibition definitely inspired me to carry on working with Photography and that it takes a lot of time to take one photo, but that it’s absolutely worth it.
There was also a small little Museum shop, where you could purchase a book for £35, with all the photographs in I believe, and a few other souvenirs, magnets, etc. I didn’t actually buy something relating to the Photography exhibition. I bought one of JJ Waller’s books (Brighton, Vol:01) for £11.99.
Greetings from rainy Britain,
