    This bold, ambitious, large-scale new exhibition at the NPG will take a look at the relationship between four Victorian artists who turned their hands to a relatively new invention: photography. Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, Lady Clementina Hawarden and Oscar Rejlander all created beautiful images that were influenced by historical painting and another group of avant-garde artists: the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

    Expect to see some truly captivating images in this major new show – with subjects including Charles Darwin, Alice Liddell (the basis for the Alice of Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, artists Dante Gabriel Rossetti and George Frederic Watts, and poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson. And our two-for-one deal with the NPG means that tickets that were £20 are not just £10 each. Don’t miss this captivating new exhibition, which will make you look at photography in an entirely new way.
