Photographic work of Format Photography agency


Hi everybody,

there is a photographic exhibition by the only female agency in British photographic history. The seventeen portraits on display will reflect the scope and achievement of this agency and this will be the first display devoted to Format at the National Portrait Gallery . Portraits displayed will include Joan Ruddock, then chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament; Jo Spence, feminist photographer; the Revd Katharine Rumens, one of the first women ordained to the Anglican priesthood; Julie Christie, actress, and Linda Bellos, originator of Black History Month. Photographs of Melissa Benn, Joan Ruddock, Angela Mason, John Pilger, the founders of Virago Press, and Stephen and Hilary Rose taken by Format photographers have recently been acquired for the National Portrait Gallery’s Collection .
Enjoy it.
