The Royal Photographic Society's Historical Group was founded in 1972 to promote knowledge of the history of photography in all its aspects, and to encourage the preservation of photographs, photographic equipment and documents relating to the history of photography.
The Group acts as a forum for all members and non-members world-wide with an interest in photographic history, from the early-nineteenth century to the present day. We also publish a journal, The PhotoHistorian, three times year.
Our next RPS livestream event is "Discover the Historical Photographs of China project" on Wednesday 14th June 2023 at 1800 (BST). Book tickets
The bi-annual Hurter & Driffield Memorial Lecture is on Saturday 2nd September 2023 in Manchester. Details here
