We have been contacted by Peter Kyte, GEM Member and freelance urban photographer, who is keen to develop some photography events with Museums, perhaps as part of Museums at Night.
Peter says: “Using your museum building as a resource can provide some interesting visitor outputs. You might have an in-Museum photo-walk, with users taking cues from close up photographs, or for those with outside spaces, there might be a ‘photography at night’ event. Some high quality low level light images of your Museum might also lead to promotional material and products in your shop. I think best of all is that this type of photography can be integrated into ‘learning through photography’ events, which might be especially relevant if your collection has archival images that might be used with contemporary work”.
