Exhibition ran between the dates 5th October- 16th December 2018.

It was the first major retrospective exhibition of the work of pioneering aerial photographer Captain Alfred G Buckham.

Creating spectacular images in the face of technical and physical adversity the madcap daredevil Captain Alfred G Buckham (1879-1956) was the foremost aerial photographer of his day.

Between 1908 to the early 1930s Buckham risked life and limb to create aerial portraits that are awe-inspiring, poetic and works of technical brilliance.


Background Information

The Museum and Gallery are dedicated to her life and work.

Just as Alfred G Buckham experimented with aerial photographs, so did Julia Margaret Cameron experiment wth portrait photographs. Thus a comparison can be made between the 2 photographers.
