Uncharted Streets: Photographers from the Hyman Collection

Kurt Hutton, Bill Brandt, Edith Tudor-Hart, Charlie Phillips, Markéta Luskačová


Curated by Ben Uri and The Centre for British Photography, Uncharted Streets: Photographers from the Hyman Collection presents five photographers who were born outside the UK but have been central to the development of photography in Britain over the last century. The title alludes to William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience and T. S. Elliot’s The Wasteland. However, it inverts their charter’d streets to suggest the role of those from outside in charting new territories, providing new perspectives and taking British photography in new directions. 


THE CENTRE FOR BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHY (registered charity number 1190955) was founded by James Hyman in 2020 and seeks to support photographers working in Britain through exhibitions, events, grants and mentoring. The charity provides a platform for a range of voices in order to present an expansive overview of the diversity of British photography, past and present.
