Art and Design for Radiology

The family of the late Sir George Pollock Bt. HonFRPS, FRSA, an accomplished photographer and a past President of the Royal Photographic Society have kindly donated a series of his photographs to be displayed in the RUH Radiology Department.

In 1962, Sir George Pollock invented a method of making abstract colour photographs using controlled light originally through glass. He called them “Vitrographs” This light refraction technique is the focus of his body of work.

There will be a lit ceiling showing sky and trees, also ceiling tiles in the bed waiting areas displaying a tree canopy.
