The V&A in B&W

V&A (Victoria and Albert) Museum in London in Black & WhiteThe Victoria & Albert Museum is one of my favorite museums in London. Their collection is incredible and every time I visit, I discover a new floor or wing that I hadn’t seen before.

This weekend I walked around the museum with my camera for a couple of hours. But instead of photographing the art, I decided to focus on the contrast between the antiquity of the pieces and the fleetingness of their visitors. Which is why I used a long shutter speed in most photos, to reduce the visitors to anonymous, temporary ghosts or dark silhouettes.

But not to worry, it’s safe to visit without running into any actual ghosts….Although of course you never know for sure what happens when the real visitors have left the building.
