What: Victorian Photography Podcast
With the invention of photography, who knew it would revolutionise culture and communication? Images of real life could be captured for prosperity and sent across the world. Portraits of royalty and other celebrities, far more accurate than paintings, allowed members of the public to feel that they were viewing these people in the flesh. In this episode, we are with guest Colin Webb, who helps making history more accessible and telling the stories that we as a culture may have forgotten, and he does this by adding colour to black and white photos. https://www.londonguidedwalks.co.uk/018-victorian-photography.php

Journeys has been co-curated by a group of Community Curators, with personal experiences of migration hailing from all over the world. The display will be shaped around the personal and diverse stories of the curators; aged between 29 and 69, whose combined heritage spans eight countries including Yemen, Sri Lanka, Italy, Pakistan and Ireland. It will examine the contemporary relevance of paintings by artists such as Poussin, Canaletto, Pynacker and van de Velde, revealing the importance of migration in enabling a dynamic, cultural exchange of ideas.
