Library Exhibition

A glimpse of Shaw from the Library

Monday 21 February - Friday 15 April 2011
Atrium Gallery, Old Building

George Bernard Shaw was not only a prolific playwright, writer, social-political commentator and thinker, but also an avid amateur photographer.  He took and collected around 20,000 photos during his lifetime, including formal and informal pictures of his family, friends and colleagues, as well as more experimental images.  This display supports and showcases some of his photographs, as well as letters, diaries and publications by Shaw from the Library's collections.  The project itself can be found online at Snapshots from Man and Cameraman.
