Simon Roberts and Stephen Daniels
As part of one of our upcoming exhibitions Simon Roberts: We English photographs from our own collection will be displayed, accompanying Roberts’ images, introducing the English at leisure from a historical perspective.
Since September last year Simon Roberts has been working closely with Ruth Kitchin, our Collections Assistant, on the selection and curation of works for the exhibition; alongside them Stephen Daniels (Professor of Cultural Geography at Nottingham Trent University and author of the essay The English Outdoors We English, Simon Roberts, Chris Boot Ltd, 2009) was invited to the Museum to discuss the development of the selection. On 24 November last year they all came together to discuss some of the considerations for the selection and this short film provides an insight into what happened that day.
Come and see the final selection of works from the Collection and We English when the exhibition opens to the public on the on the 12 March.
