You’ll also engage in scholarly debates and actively contribute to the conception of displays and exhibitions.

You’ll also have an established (and enviable) network of contacts in the field of photography. It is also important that you have extensive experience of staging photography displays and exhibitions. The nature of the role will mean regular overseas travel and attending functions outside normal hours.
