Mark Haworth-Booth
Mark Haworth-Booth served as a curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum from 1970-2004 and helped to build up its great collection of photography. He is now Visiting Professor of Photography at University of the Arts London. Mark is also Senior Research Fellow at the London College of Communication, Honorary Research Fellow at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and a Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art. He has curated many exhibitions, the most recent being The Art of Lee Miller (V&A/Yale, 2007; Hazan, Paris 2008)). The exhibition toured to Philadelphia, San Francisco and Paris and received over half a million visitors. Mark acted as a consultant on the BBC's well-received television series The Genius of Photography, aired autumn 2007. He is now preparing, with Jeu de Paume, Paris and the National Portrait Gallery in London, a centenary retrospective of the pioneering photographer Camille Silvy (1834-1910), to be shown in Paris and London in 2010. Mark researched the Silvy exhibition catalogue at the J. Paul Getty Museum as a guest scholar in April-June 2008.
Apart from the Silvy retrospective, Mark is an editor of the Exposures series of books on photography published by Reaktion Books. In addition, Mark travelled to Egypt in January 2009 with Antony and Joshua Penrose to study the work of Lee Miller there in the years 1934-39.
Mark supports Airplot (activist opposition to Heathrow airport expansion), Amnesty International, Chelsea FC, Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, the London Cycling Campaign, the National Blood Service, the Poetry Society, the Soil Association, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Wandsworth Society.

Sadly, the show is a kind of historical document in itself. 'It's totally opposite to what's happening now,' says Mark Haworth-Booth, head of photography at the V&A, who finds the current emphasis in newspapers and magazines on lifestyle and celebrity 'thoroughly depressing, lightweight and tedious'. Haworth-Booth points to a dissolution of photographic connoisseurship in magazines. This may be partly due to the digital age, he says, which has removed the sense of specialism in the task of picture-editing.
The mainstream press is so longer the answer.' One way forward, suggests Haworth-Booth, is provided by Cities Peres, known for his photographs of the Rwanda conflict. '[Peres] is very good at creating a coalition between publishing, magazines and exhibitions, so costs can be shared around.
