*Excluding Sun 18 May, Sun 1 & Sat 7 June*

Picture the Poet brings together images of some of the most important poets of our times, captured by equally well known photographers living today.

Benjamin Zephaniah, Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy are just some of the poets included in this digital exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery. 

The pictures provide an insight into the people who have crafted images for our imaginations out of words. 

The themes explored by the poets in the exhibition include sense of place, love, loss, identity and struggle; from the 1950s to the present day.

Fusion Screen 10am-4.30pm
