Museums and visitor photography

I was very pleased to see this book arrive on my desk this week. It’s got my first ever book chapter in it! Plus it looks really smart. You can buy copies from the publisher, here.


I used visitor tracking data from the British Museum to look at how visitor photography and dwell time are related, and how this relationship differed before and after a mega gallery redisplay. I’m sure there is much more research to do in this area.

A version of the draft text is available here, without the figures or images in the book. Drop a line if you want to know more, I would love for you to read it.
