Reflections in time
19th-century portrait photography

From the anonymous sitters reflected in the mirrored surface of a daguerreotype to the evocative portraits of David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, Reflections in time explores the changes that occurred in international photographic portraiture from 1839 to 1900.

The exhibition, drawn from the Gallery’s international collection and supplemented by loans from private collectors, also includes work by Julia Margaret Cameron, Napoleon Sarony, John Thomson and Baron von Stillfried.
