Join us for a free lunchtime lecture at The Queen's Gallery with your exhibition or 1-Year Pass as we look at the work of photographer Francis Bedford who accompanied the Prince of Wales's on his tour of the East in 1862. Although Bedford's work fitted into a long western tradition of picturing the ‘the Orient’, during this period photography was also becoming increasingly respected as a science.  Using Bedford’s later studies of antiquities Dr Debbie Challis (Petrie Museum, University College London) explores the effect photography had on another emerging science: archaeology.
