British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online event: ‘Ladies shall be eligible’ / 8 March 2022

As part of International Women's Day the Royal Photographic Society will be presenting Rose Teanby who will talk about early women photographers in the Photographic Society. 

Queen Victoria became joint patron of the Photographic Society of London (later the Royal Photographic Society) in May 1853 and continued her support until her death in 1901. From its beginnings women were encouraged to join the Society at a time of widespread exclusion from many aspects of Victorian life, and this talk features women members of the society demonstrating their skill and enthusiasm for the new photographic art.
