About2013 marks the 125th anniversary of the Wolverhampton Photographic Society. To celebrate the occasion, this exhibition traces the rich and influential history of photography in Wolverhampton from the mid-19th century to the present day.
The exhibition features six key local figures of influence in the medium's development, including the âfather of art photography' Oscar G Rejlander, and others such as Haseler, Whitlock, Bennett-Clark, Eisenhofer and Susser. This historical component is complemented by a display of contemporary photographs demonstrating the expertise of Society members in capturing the constantly changing face of the city.
This exhibition has been generously supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.
