Much of our knowledge of the world, from its most celebrated events to its most sudden tragedies, comes from photographs. Photography unites billions of people; cameras not only create art, but also foster understanding among cultures around the globe. The National Media Museum recognizes the immense importance of photography, presenting exhibits that track its history and continued significance in today’s increasingly fragmented world. Displaying collections from the 19th century on, as well as ongoing exhibitions and events, the museum offers visitors an in-depth examination of photography. The website will give you a taste of the museum’s magic: Download educational books and podcasts related to its exhibits, and learn about television, Internet, and other media. If you’ll be in Bradford, England, anytime soon, plan a trip to the museum, where you can view early cameras and the world’s first negative.
