CROWN AND CAMERA: STUDIO PORTRAITS OF VICTORIA AND ALBERT

Lunchtime Lecture

In 1839, two years after Victoria became Queen, the invention of the photography was announced.

Sabina Jaskot-Gill, Associate Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, London, traces the royal passion for photography and considers how royalty chose to be photographed in the 19th century, with social status conveyed through backdrops, props, costumes and poses.
