Event Description

Bedford Lemere & Co. was the leading architectural photography company of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In business from the 1870s until the 1940s Bedford Lemere and his son Harry Bedford Lemere pioneered professional architectural photography and set the standards for others to follow. The English Heritage, custodians of the Bedford Lemere & Co. collection, will explore the company's extraordinary client list. Employed by a range of industrialists, retailers and government departments, the firm's photographs capture new buildings in pristine condition, often showing the work of leading contemporary architects, interior decorators, designers and artists.
