Bryan Heseltine

Whilst in Oxford the other week, I took the opportunity to visit the People Apart: Cape Town Survey 1952 exhibition in the Long Gallery at the Pitt Rivers Museum. There were some great photos on display, clearly Heseltine was a talented photographer.

I did, however, have two issues regarding the exhibition. Firstly, there was a lack of signs pointing towards, or even identifying the work as being the Long Gallery. Secondly, but in a similar vein, it was in a small corridor next to the toilets. Whilst I was there, the only people who glanced at the work were those rushing past it with other agendas. I guess that must be what Oxford University think of photography...

Still, it was good to see some alternative work by a lesser known individual.
