This new and unique Lightbox exhibition will for the first time in over 30 years present a comprehensive historical survey of the achievements of female photographers working in Britain. The exhibition features around 70 works including Turner Prize winners and nominees and Venice biennale exhibitors such as Helen Sear, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Collins, Gillian Wearing and Jane and Louise Wilson.
The photographs included date from the mid-19th century through to 2009 and will chart progressions in style, techniques and popular subject matter. Early notable photographers include Julia Margaret Cameron, Lady Hawarden and Queen Alexandra. Works have been generously lent by many leading museums and galleries including by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collection, Tate, Victoria & Albert Museum, Arts Council Collection, British Council Collection, National Portrait Gallery, Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Lee Miller Archive.
