The Art of Photography 1840 to present Marina Vaizey BA MA (Cantab) Monday 15 July 2019

From being a toy for wealthy Victorians through cheap products for the masses and finally digital cameras photography has become an essential part of modern living and on the way has also become an art form in the hands of say  Cartier - Bresson or Robert Capa to take just a very small sample. This is a vast subject and Marina will take us on a whistle–stop tour halting at significant events and persons.
