John Singer Sargent opens at NPG

UnknownFollowing previous work with the in-house design team at NPG, DHA Designs were delighted to be asked to light this astonishing collection of portraits by the wonderful  Sargent.

The exhibition opened to rave reviews, including 5-stars from Jonathan Jones (Guardian) who described it as “daring, haunting and astonishing” and Richard Dorment (Telegraph) feeling it was “one of the best exhibition’s I’ve ever seen at NPG”.

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.
