DHA Designs are very pleased to continue our association with the Science Museum and DrinkallDean by working on Drawn by Light exhibition in the Museum’s Media Space.

Our third exhibition in the space brings about it’s own special challanges, in this case how to light three Heliographic silver plates to ensure all were visible. This turned out to be a very delicate task.

This exhibition draws on many collections and is a must see for anyone interested in the history of photography and photographers.

The exhibition runs until the 3rd of January 2015.
