Sara Hannant photographs the collection

This week friend of the Museum and acclaimed photographer Sara Hannant photographed our amazing collection.  Sara was working on a new book - more details to follow - which will show the objects at their very best.

Sara's work has been exhibited at Cecil Sharp House, the Horniman and many other venues, and her latest book, 'Mummers, Maypoles and Milkmaids:  A Journey Through the English Ritual Year' was Runner-up for the prestigious 2012 Katherine Briggs Folklore Award.

The images Sara created were truly breathtaking (watch this blog for updates) - and we look forward to seeing the finished publication.  Thanks Sara!
