Teaching Resources

The RPS in partnership with Photopedagogy provide educators with inspirational teaching resources that work alongside exhibitions shown in our gallery. These resources can however be used independently but are perfect for further study before, during and after a visit. The resources offer practical ideas, theory and insight into other creative practitioners’ work and extends the learning experience based around the subject matter.

If you would like to join our Teachers Facebook page to be kept up to date on exhibitions and events or share your ideas and work please contact liz@rps.org

Box Image

Sugar Paper Theories sees Bristol based photographer Jack Latham, immerse himself in the most controversial murder investigation in Icelandic history, the Guðmundur and Geirfinnur case. From meeting key protagonists to locating and photographing key sites of the investigation, the project brings together original photographs with a range of archival and documentary materials to explore the fundamental relationship between photography and truth. 

There are no graphic images in the exhibition although the subject matter may make it unsuitable for very young children.  However, the approach and investigative nature of the project enables you to adapt the lessons to different levels of study or be used to develop your own personal project.
