This is an excellent opportunity to see a small but important collection of work by Burton Brothers of Dunedin.  Sons of John Burton of Leicester, Alfred Henry Burton (1834–1914) and Walter John Burton (1836–1880) settled in New Zealand and produced an important body of work from New Zealand and many of the South Pacific islands. Although they operated a conventional studio their major contribution is in the field of landscapes and work of ethnographic interest.
Delegates will also be able to see additional material in the Research Room, including some albums by Sir Wilfred Thesiger.
There is no charge for Group members but donation of £5 to the Museum, on the day, is suggested. 
Numbers are strictly limited and bookings via the RPS website will close on 10th February or earlier if all places are booked
Meet at the Museum at 1.45pm
