I have just returned from a visit to the British Library in central London, near Kings Cross station. Entitled “Points of View”, it is a selection of photographs from the library’s collection and examines the development of photography and its influence in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

This was really two discoveries in one for me, as it was the first time that I had been to the British Library. It is a wonderful place holding 14 million books, 920,000 journal and newspaper titles, 58 million patents and 3 million sound recordings. It also hosts a range of exhibitions, events and lectures, most of which are free.

The exhibition is an excellent overview of the origins of photography and I highly recommend it to anyone who is seriously interested in the art/science. Just go to the web site http://www.bl.uk/ and search for “points of view”.
