Photography Exhibition: Victoria and Albert Museum - Capturing the Moment: Photographs by Reg Wilson

Anthony Sher, Richard III, 1985 by Reg WilsonThe Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England periodically has wonderful photographic exhibitions. Capturing the Moment: Photographs by Reg Wilson is one of those terrific exhibitions.

This exhibition will run through January 10, 2010

Reg Wilson is one of Britain's most prolific performance photographers.  From the 1960s he has recorded four decades of the performing arts in all their richness and variety, capturing the great and the good on stage, backstage and in the studio.

This selection from Wilson's archive, chosen by the artist, shows every aspect of the performance process from the studio to the finished product.  It also demonstrates a range of techniques, from the staged photo-call to the snatched backstage shot and includes some of the earliest stage photography and colour productions.

If you’re in the London, England area through early January, 2010, I strongly suggest you take in this terrific exhibition.

As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.
