British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition: A Century of Photography, 1840-1940

From October 2016 London's National Portrait Gallery will celebrate photography with an installation dedicated to its extraordinary photography collection. The display will feature works by internationally renowned makers such as Edward Weston and Frederick Evans alongside photographs from the archives of Cecil Beaton and Madame Yevonde.

Included will be some of the Gallery’s great nineteenth century treasures – works by Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, Hill and Adamson, and many others. Also on display for the first time will be the recently acquired album of photographs by the Swedish émigré photographer Oscar Rejlander. The display will remain until October 2017. See a list of all photographs in room 29
