Event Description

The Lives of Great Photographers is a compelling new
exhibition drawn exclusively from the Museum’s  extensive and diverse Photography Collection,  including works from The Royal Photographic Society  Collection and the Daily Herald Archive. Together this exhibition presents a selection of photographs by some of the greatest photographers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.


From photographs by William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron and Eadweard Muybridge to Tony  Ray-Jones and Weegee, this exhibition highlights some of the most famous and historically memorable images ever produced and illuminates the extraordinary and sometimes exceptional lives the photographers led.
