Exhibition: Centenary - Hurter and Driffield

Centenary describes two landmark exhibitions supported by The RPS Historical Group, which commemorate the lives and times of two 19th century photographic pioneers. In 1915, the Royal Photographic Society’s Council initiated a surviving three-part tribute to honour the memory of Ferdinand Hurter and Charles Vero Driffield, and which consists of a memorial volume, occasional lectures and an archive.

Drawing on his accumulation of photographs, illustrations and documents, Dr R M Callender FRPS, has produced displays for Widnes Public Library during November and December 2015, and a six-week exhibition for Gallery Two at Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham, which opens on 12 January 2016. The Centre will host an Open Evening on 15 January and the exhibition closes on Sunday 21 February.

Ron Callender is happy to answer questions and enquiries via his email at: finlaggan@hotmail.com. As part of Centenary, he has also revised his booklet, Mr Driffield and Dr Hurter, which is despatched for £4 by first class postage. Castle Park Arts Centre has a website which is regularly updated at: www.castleparkarts.co.uk
