British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

There are several exhibitions of the work of British photographer Roger Mayne taking place. His vintage London and Paris photographs to be shown at Quaritch in May and will comprise small-format vintage prints, from iconic images of children playing to views of Paris photographed the year before his renowned Southam Street series. The exhibition will run Wednesday 10 to Friday 19 May at 40 South Audley Street. 

In the meantime, you can see Roger Mayne’s work at two current exhibitions. The Photographers’ Gallery in London is the first major exhibition since 1999 to show Mayne’s iconic work. Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton, Devon, is exhibiting Mayne’s large-scale photographs of Southam Street. These prints were hung in the barn at the photographer’s home in Lyme Regis and now remain in a fragile state revealing layers of age and decay.
