A company, SNPC Ltd has been
established, and has been set up. It has established an action
committee under the chairmanship of Michael Shea, the Queen's former press
donation has been received, and is to be used to fund a feasibility study.
SNPC has produced a brochure giving the latest news of the project
[at Nov 2002] .
is continuing to consult interested parties and to ensure that their
project is inclusive, following the Public Meeting in November 2003 at
which no aspects of photography were ruled out.
It is hoped
that the centre will be able to house the National Portrait Gallery's
collection of 27,000 images and other photographic collections, and that
it will be able to attract visitors, hold exhibitions, carry out conservation and to provide facilities for
researchers and working photographers.
