Claire and James Hyman are delighted to launch our new website http://www.britishphotography.org
The website is intended to showcase our private collection and to serve as an educational resource that reflects our ongoing commitment to supporting and promoting photography in Britain.
We have spent the last three years working on the design and content of this website and we are very grateful to the many people who have assisted us in documenting and cataloguing the works and have helped build the database and website.
Claire and I both believe that art should be accessible to all and hope that this website based on pictures in our collection will serve as a public resource that will help the status of photography in Britain as well as making it more readily accessible to an international audience.
The Hyman Collection is wideranging and includes work in all media with a particular emphasis on photography from its birth to the present. However, as an indication of our commitment to supporting British photography we have chosen to launch with this aspect of the collection.
www.britishphotography.org is intended to provide online access to British photographs in their private collection and to use this part of the collection as an educational resource to increase international awareness of British photography. As well as including forms of documentary photography, the collection focuses on artists working in photography who have pursued more subjective or conceptual strategies. The collection has historic as well as contemporary photographs and includes an equal number of works by male and female artists.
The Hyman Collection seeks to support and promote British photography through acquisitions, loans, education and philanthropy. The Hyman Collection began in 1996 and consists of artworks in all media. Over the last ten years The Hyman Collection has focused on photography from its earliest days to the present.
