EDWIN SMITH

30 June - 1 September

Edwin Smith (1912-1971) was the most significant British photographer of architecture and landscape in the mid twentieth century. For twenty years, his images graced many notable books and helped redefine notions of Britishness for the post-war generation. His achingly beautiful interpretations of characteristic buildings from cathedrals to cottages, and terrains from beach to bog, convey an unparalleled sense of place.

An exclusive collaboration with the British Architectural Library Photographs Collection, RIBA, the 55 images in the exhibition will comprise a comprehensive overview of
his career.
