James Hyman Photography is pleased to present an exhibition that explores the theme of the ruin in vintage photography by juxtaposing vintage works by some of the most important early French and British photographers with images of destruction in the Second World War. The exhibition begins with photographs taken by Gustave Le Gray in the Middle East and Roger Fenton of the Crimean War that address the status of the ruin both as the result of the passage of time and of the ravages of war. The exhibition explores these two aspects - the effects of the elements and of man - through a selection of works by, among others, Eugene Atget, Edouard Baldus, Roger Fenton, Gustave Le Gray and Henri-Victor Regnault.
