It may have taken me two years to eventually stumble into Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum but it was not one to disappoint. Amongst Roman Ruins and cabinets of bengal tigers shot by King George the fifth, The gallery is currently exhibiting a collection showcasing 100 years of fashion photography. Curated by Susanna Brown of The V and A, The collection ranges from the muted muses of 1920’s deco through to Traeger’s iconic shot of Twiggy capturing the optimism of 1960’s youth. The progression of both technology and attitudes within the industry is evident through the work of Rankin, Teller and Testino. Unfortunately the exhibition closes on the second of september, but if you should find yourself stranded in the wet wild west this summer, check it out.
