Event Description

As mentioned in an earlier blog by the BPH blog creator - Drawing on the V&A's rich holdings of 19th-century photographs, this display examines the relationship that developed between photography and architectural practice in the 19th century and explores how photography facilitated the re-discovery of an idealised past. The display also addresses the role played by photography in the recording of buildings before demolition and its use as a tool for preserving the national architectural heritage.

Free admission

Photograph: Westminster, with The Henry VII Chapel and Clock Tower of The Houses of Parliament, Stephen Ayling, U.K., about 1869
