History and Identity Through the Lens: Black Representation in Portraiture

The Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington are running a photography workshop on Saturday 27th of November in the digital studio of the Sackler Education centre from 11:00-4:30pm.

Explore history, image and identity and create your own unusual photographs. Be inspired by a tour of the V&A exhibition Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography and look at our collection of photographic portraits of young people, many taken more than thirty years ago. Then use your inspiration to make a set of unusual digital portraits of your group and experiment with Photoshop to enhance and retouch your images. You can borrow a camera at the V&A, or use your own. Bring a small item of clothing or an object that says something great about you to include in your photograph.

 This is a Free, ticketed event, for young people aged 12-17. To book, call 020 7942 2211.
