Street View: Photographs of Urban Life @ Graves Gallery
‘The invention of smaller, lighter hand-held cameras in the late 19th century enabled photographers to escape the restrictions of the studio and take their practice onto the street. Ever since, the street has appeared in photographs as both a primary subject and an informative backdrop, contextualising the rest of the scene. This exhibition explores the diversity of the street; as a social space, as a battleground for protest and as a source of artistic inspiration.’
We had the pleasure of working with Museum Sheffield on framing this exhibition for the Graves Gallery. They have been collecting photographic works since the 1970s and have exhibited a selection of highlights spanning from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
The framing style was simple and coherent, using museum standard mount cards and photo corners. Below: work in progess.
