To coincide with the revitalisation of Trafalgar Square, 'Circling the Square' celebrated the Square's history, through the eyes of generations of photographers, spanning over 160 years.
The exhibition explored the identity of a public space through its photographic representation, and included over 100 photographs that mapped the shifting meanings of a space that has been described as the blank slab upon which Britain has inscribed its modern history.
A paper exploring the role of photography in asserting the identity of the space was presented at the conference, Square Politics at the National Gallery (2003) and a public lecture series was organised at the National Portrait Gallery with speakers including Tariq Ali, Don McCullin and Rodney Mace.
