The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) collection was in our care between 2002 and 2016. In 2016 we announced that it would transfer to the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A).
At the V&A, the RPS collection will be stored, digitised and made available for study; the permanent gallery space dedicated to photography at the V&A will expand significantly, and there are plans for an International Photography Resource Centre as part of a longer-term and wide-ranging project to improve access to the collection.
All requests to access or borrow RPS material for short- or long-term loan should now to be directed to the V&A.
For study or re搜索 requests, more information can be found on the V&A’s 学习室页, under the heading Prints & Drawings Study Room.
Information relating to the V&A Loans Out process can be found on the V&A’s 贷款页.
If you have a loan request containing material both in the RPS collection and the 国家科学 和媒体博物馆 collection, please direct the relevant parts of the request to the V&A and the 现金赌钱游戏app respectively.
