Pitt Rivers

I love visiting Pitt Rivers Museum. Having a large sweeping glance at the bright beauty of the Natural History Museum before delving into the twiddly darkness of Pitt Rivers.  There  is no way of seeing everything in one visit so I just wander about happily absorbing things in a non-linear fashion. There certainly appeared to be a theme for this visits photos though; I got very excited by what some might call the material processes and others might call making do with what we had. Photography is a bit hard in a darkened, glass filled space.
