Exhibitions of the Royal Photographic Society 1870-1915

This is an online research database of over 45,000 records from the annual exhibition catalogues of the Photographic Society, London, published between 1870 and 1915. It contains detailed records of all the exhibits, plus information about exhibitors, judges, hanging and selecting committee members. It also contains reproductions of all the catalogue pages and all the pictures of the photographs that were printed in the catalogues, plus further pictures and reviews of the exhibitions published in the contemporary publication Photograms of the Year. The interface allows visitors to browse the data, pictures and the catalogue pages, to search for specific information and to refine and export search results.

‘Exhibitions of the Royal Photographic Society 1870-1915’ was developed with the assistance of an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) resource enhancement grant.
