Join us for the official opening of Oscar G. Rejlander: Artist Photographer.

Often referred to as the "Father of Art Photography," Rejlander has been praised for his early experiments with combination printing, for his collaboration with Charles Darwin, and for his influence on the work of Julia Margaret Cameron and Lewis Carroll. This groundbreaking exhibition is the first major retrospective on Rejlander, highlighting newly discovered research and a selection of works being brought together for the first time.
