In 1852, the V&A became the first museum to collect photographs and in 1858, the first to hold a photography exhibition. The Photographs Gallery draws upon the V&A's internationally renowned collection and chronicles the history of photography from the 1840s up to the 1970s. It showcases some of the most technically brilliant and artistically accomplished photographs in the history of the medium.
