Event Description

From photographs by William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron and Eadweard Muybridge to Dorothea Lange, Tony Ray-Jones and Weegee, this exhibition highlights some of the most famous images ever produced. It illuminates the extraordinary and sometimes exceptional lives these photographers led. The exhibition includes original salt and albumen prints from as early as 1843 and gelatin silver prints from leading photographers of the twentieth century. Subjects range from early experiments in photography to portraits, landscapes and images of war by photographers commissioned to be on the frontline.

The Lives of the Great Photographers is a compelling exhibition drawn exclusively from the archive of the National Media Museum including works from The Royal Photographic 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.

This exhibition has been organised in partnership with the National Media Museum, Bradford
