The early photographic world in Britain was characterized by massive experiments. Two photographers in that ear flourished and they established photography as an independent art form.
Roger Fenton and Julia Margaret Cameron were Britain’s most successful photographers during the 19th Century. The photographs in this exhibit, Early British Photographs from the Royal Collection, were collected by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Both of them were inclined to photography at that time. The queen liked portraits and the prince preferred fine art photography. When she died in 1901, the total number of collected photographs totaled to 20,000.
Together, Fenton and Cameron offer an unexpected glimpse into the life of the royal family and the artistic world of Victorian England.
