The Hyman Collection
The Hyman Collection began in 1996 and consists of artworks in all media. Over the last ten years The Hyman Collection has focused on photography from its earliest days to the present.
The Hyman Collection seeks to support and promote British photography through acquisitions, loans and education. In 2015 it launched britishphotography.org to provide online access to British photographs in the collection and to use this part of the collection as an educational resource to increase international awareness of British photography. As well as including forms of documentary photography, the collection focuses on artists working in photography who have pursued more subjective or conceptual strategies. The collection has historic as well as contemporary photographs and includes an equal number of works by male and female artists.
