Hyman Collection donates 125 photographs to Yale Center for British Art

The Yale Center for British Art has expanded its collection of photographs through a generous gift of 125 works from the London-based collectors Claire and James Hyman. The gift includes prints by famed British photographers Bill Brandt (1904–1983), Tony Ray-Jones (1941–1972), and Martin Parr (b. 1952), and it introduces works by Bert Hardy (1913–1995), Roger Mayne (1929–2014), Fay Godwin (1931–2005), John Blakemore (b. 1936), Colin Jones (b. 1936), Anna Fox (b. 1961), and many others who are not yet represented in the Center’s steadily growing collection. A selection reflecting the range of British photographers and approaches to the medium represented in this gift is now on display in the second-floor galleries, mounted by Assistant Curator of Photography Chitra Ramalingam.
