Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition: Women in Photography: A History of British Trailblazers / from 30 January 2019

From the early innovations of Anna Atkins and Queen Alexandra, through to Dorothy Bohm’s depiction of 1960s London and the self-portraiture of Sarah Lucas in the 2000s, the exhibition will, for the first time, present an in depth historical survey showcasing the achievements of female photographers working in Britain. In collaboration with Fast Forward Women in Photography at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. The exhibition is part of an ongoing international campaign to bring pioneering women photographers to a wider audience and expose the discrimination of working in a male dominated world.

The exhibition is supported by a Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant from Art Fund.
