Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Roger Taylor, photo-historian, has been recognised in the 2020 Queen's birthday honours list with a MVO  - Member of the Royal Victorian Order - for 'services to the Royal Collection'. Taylor's association with the collection started in the late 1970s with a project for World Microfilms, it developed in to a landmark exhibition with Frances Dimond, Crown and Camera which was shown at the Queens's Gallery in 1987.

Taylor was a curator at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television from 1985-1996. His projects since then - in print, in public and online - have all been significant and continue to inform photographic scholarship.
