Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
An online event with Dr Jan Graffius, curator of collections at Stonyhurst College, who will be talking to Gilly Read FRPS about Roger Fenton and his photographs of Stonyhurst and the surrounding countryside.
Although Roger Fenton (1819-1869) is best known for his images of the Crimean War, he trained as a painter and photographed many varied subjects. He lived near Stonyhurst at Crimble Hall and took many landscape photographs around Stonyhurst as well as photographs of the College itself. Fenton was also the first secretary of the Photographic Society, now the Royal Photographic Society.
The talk is free and can be booked here: https://rps.org/stonyhurst
