LIBRARY COLLECTIONS

The library provides a very large collection of photobooks, theoretical works, textbooks and manuals, with new titles being added all the time. The exhibition catalogues of all the major galleries in London are on bought standing order.

New academic writing is also available online in journals such as History of Photography, Photographies, and Photography and Culture; and we also take a number of photographic magazines.
