More about

Established in 1988, Autograph's mission is to champion the work of artists who use photography and film to highlight questions of race, representation, human rights and social justice. Every year we engage hundreds of thousands of people locally, nationally and globally at our gallery in London, digitally and through projects taking place in partner spaces. Autograph collects photographic material which addresses gaps in the visual representation of Britain's cultural history and its diverse communities. These works support others in learning about subjects and stories left out of historical and contemporary visual records. We currently hold approximately 5,000 prints, 10,000+ negatives, 5,000 slides, as well as several thousand contact sheets and a small amount of archival film and ephemera – though the collection is always growing. Autograph is an inclusive space where the myriad stories of marginalised people are valued and cared for, presented, published, discussed, shared and spread. Our work serves to highlight who and what is absent or present in visual representation: whether within national museum collections, social media stories or contemporary exhibitions and publications.
