An exhibition that reveals the work of Bedford Lemere & Co who, through their pioneering photography, became the leading English firm of architectural photographers, setting the standards for those who followed.
Employed by a wide range of industrialists, retailers, government departments and private house owners, the firm's photographs capture new buildings in pristine condition, often showing the work of leading contemporary architects, interior decorators, designers and artists.
Curated by English Heritage, custodians of the Bedford Lemere & Co collection, the exhibition reveals the exceptional quality, depth and sharpness of the images which render them as fresh and legible today as when they were first composed.
