British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

To mark the centenary of Samuel Bourne’s death, a special exhibition of this 19th century photographer will be open to the public shortly.

The exhibition aims to raise awareness of The Bromley House Studio Heritage Project, directed by Geoff Blackwell. Alfred Barber set up the first ever photographic studio in the Midlands in the attic rooms of Bromley House in 1842. The aim of Geoff's project is to create a photographic research centre in these rooms and raise awareness of Nottingham's important contribution to photography.

During the launch evening on Wednesday 26 September the College will be presenting prizes and certificates to photographers who gained awards in the 2012 Bromley House Photographic Competition. South Nottingham College Student Tim Johnson from the Foundation Degree in Photography Practise course won first place. A selection of prize winning images will be on display.

Details of the exhibition can be found here.
