Does documentary photography show a true picture of the world? Do portrait photographs capture a person’s identity? This exhibition explores how photography has pictured people from the 19th century to the present. The exhibition sheds light on three key periods in the documentary genre: 1880s social documentary, 1960s street photography, and 1990s everyday documentary. In the portrait genre, “Snap” shows contemporary photography from the 1990s through to 2016.

The catalogue is richly illustrated with photos from the exhibition.
