See The Thames Through Past and Present Photos
Views of the River Thames from the past 125 years will be on show at the Corinium Museum this summer thanks to images from past and present photographers.
The ‘In the Footsteps of Henry Taunt’ photography exhibition will run at the Cirencester museum from Sunday July 5th to Saturday September 5th and will show fascinating views of the Thames through historical and contemporary photographs.
Victorian photographer Henry Taunt, who used cutting-edge photography unheard of at the time, captured images of the Thames from the 1860s onwards and later produced a pocket guide to the river complete with his photos.
Alongside Henry Taunt’s photos of the Thames will be the work of more contemporary professional photographers Graham Diprose and Jeff Robbins, who have both been inspired by Taunt’s Thames photography.
Graham Diprose currently works as the Lead Tutor in Photography at the London College of Communication and has exhibited his own photography works, while Jeff Robbins is also a lecturer at the University of the Arts in London and has an extensive advertising and marketing photography portfolio.
This historical exhibition combines Taunt’s images with Diprose’s and Robbin’s modern equivalents to make fascinating ‘then and now’ views that capture changes in the Thames over the past 125 years.
The exhibition opens on July 5th, and admission costs £4.25 for adults or £2 for children over five. Senior Citizens pay £3.50 and students £2.75. A family ticket – two adults and two children – costs £11.50. The exhibition is included in the Museum’s entry fee.
The Corinium Museum is open from Monday to Saturday, 10am-5pm, and on Sundays from 2pm-5pm. It is also open on Bank Holiday Mondays.
