Modern Nature. Photographs from the Hyman Collection, Hepworth Wakefield
We are delighted that the Hepworth Wakefield (Museum of the Year 2017) have curated an exhibition from British photography in the Hyman Collection. "Modern Nature includes around 60 photographs taken since the end of the Second World War, through the beginnings of de-industrialisation, to the present day. It explores the merging of urban and rural landscapes, the rapid expansion of cities and the increasingly intrusive management of the countryside. Rather than present a Romantic dichotomy between the rural and the urban, the exhibition presents a more contemporary sensibility that is frequently situated in the edgelands, the often scruffy margins, in which town blurs countryside."

Anna Fox. The Moon and a Smile
The Hyman Collection is pleased to have acquired three new photographs by Anna Fox made in response to a commission by the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Swansea. The Moon and a Smile exhibition was based on the contempoary responses of nine photographers to a period in the 1840s and 1850s, when Swansea was at the centre of early experiments in photography worldwide. In particular, the Dillwyn family circle was prolific in the development of photography, especially Mary Dillwyn and John Dillwyn Llewellyn. Commissioned by Glynn Vivian, the nine international artists created new work for the exhibition, alongside a display of 19th century photography.
