British Photos

Claire and James Hyman have put online the Hyman Collection of over 3,000 artworks with the emphasis on British photography from the 19th century to the present day. They seek to support British photographers through acquisitions and commissions, research, an award, online exhibitions and their free portal to British Photography: CLICK. Shown is Bert Hardy's photo Gorbals Boys, Glasgow (1948). Note the date. These two filthy urchins in Glasgow's Gorbals slums look as though they belong to the Victorian era. 1948!
