Founded in London in 1853, The Royal Photographic Society is one of the oldest photographic societies around. Roger Fenton was the driving force behind its formation, the famous wet collodion pioneer who became the Society’s first secretary.
Fenton’s one of my few photographic heroes. If there’s one person in early photographic history who I could join for a blether over a pint, it would be him! I always mention Fenton — and his assistant Marcus Sparling — in my talks and I now have the opportunity to give an online presentation to the members of the Royal Photographic Society on 10th February 2022.
All are welcome. Book online free-of-charge here:

Earlier this month, I received some good news from the National Library of Wales where 26 of my prints are held in the National Collection of Welsh Photographs:
Two of my photographs are to be shown at their satellite gallery, Riverside in Haverfordwest, in a pair of exhibitions which open today, Saturday 18th September.
My portrait of the Tenby RNLI crew (a print of which has also been purchased by Martin Parr for the Martin Parr Foundation) is being shown in an exhibition titled ‘People: Photographs from the National Collection’ and will feature alongside images from other photographers such as David Hurn and Philip Jones Griffiths celebrating the art of documentary photography and the lives of ordinary people.
The second photogaph will be shown in the other half of the same gallery in a semi permanent exhibition ‘Pembrokeshire: Then & Now’ which will showcase a small number of items from across the Library’s vast collections (paintings, photographs, manuscripts and archives) based on the theme of Pembrokeshire. The NLW have chosen ‘St Davids RNLI Old and New Boathouses’ to feature in this display.
