A new exhibition at The Lightbox in Woking focuses on the pioneering role of women in the development and popularisation of photography from its nineteenth-century origins until the present day. Photographs by Queen Alexandra (1844–1925) have been lent from the Royal Collection and these highlight her interest in photography, her skill as a photographer and her role in promoting the medium to a wider audience. The loan also includes part of a porcelain tea service, made at the Cauldon factory and innovatively decorated with transfers from photographs taken by Queen Alexandra of family, friends, and holiday scenes. The exhibition is on display until 2 June 2019.
