Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
BPH member Rob Crow is seeking assistance to help identify the members of this group of eight photographers. Seated nearest the camera is Walter Benington (1872-1936) the Pictorialist photographer and leading member of the Linked Ring in its later years. He was a member of the Ring’s “Hanging Committee” from 1907. Margaret Harker (1979: 109) has a photograph of the 1909 Committee so this one may possibly be from earlier.
The print is from a collection of family and miscellaneous portraits from a collection of Benington’s work now in Australia.
Any suggestions warmly welcomed. Please comment below.
