NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC: THEN & NOW

We are delighted to announce the first exhibition in Europe of vintage prints from the extraordinary archives of the National Geographic Society. These will be hung along side a carefully curated display of contemporary images by current staff photographers.

The exhibition is broad in its scope, and will underline the very significant contribution to the history of photography that National Geographic staff photographers have made for over a century.

The show will open to the public on 23 September.
