The Historical Group has arranged a series of visits to photography exhibitions in London, including two curator-led tours. The programme is:
11.30am. Tate Britain. Victorian Art and Stereoscopic Photography (Brian May and Denis Pellerin) with an introduction by Dr Carolyn Bloore.
Lunch near the Science Museum
2.30pm. Media Space. Revelations: Experiments in Photography.
Afternoon tea at the V&A
6.30pm. V&A. Captain Linnaeus Tripe: Photographer of India and Burma 1852-1860 guided by the exhibition curator Emeritus Professor Roger Taylor.
The day is free to members, but travel within London and admission charges are to be borne by those attending. Bookings must be made via the website and should be made early to avoid disappointment as numbers are limited.
