The Furniture at Dulwich Picture Gallery

The Furniture at Dulwich Picture Gallery is a catalogue of the collection of furniture bequeathed by Margaret Morris Desenfans, one of the Gallery’s founders, in the early 19th century. The furniture has adorned the Gallery since it opened in 1817, and has been joined by a few pieces from other sources since then.

The publication was produced in 2009 with a contribution from NADFAS. Photography was by Fulvio Rubesa.

RCAHMS Aerial Photography

Based in Edinburgh, I have been an Aerial Photographer with The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland since 1991. As part of the Survey and Recording Department, my remit is to photograph man’s impact on the Scottish landscape and capture it in the most informative and creative way possible. My photography covers sites as diverse as archaeology, architecture and landscapes and the resultant photographs are archived and available to view through Canmore, our web database. Some of these images have also featured in our best selling books such as “Above Scotland”, and “Above Scotland – Cities”.

Jewish Museum - World City: Refugee Stories

In partnership with Kingston University and the Refugee Council,the Jewish Museum’s Ian Lillicrapp has undertaken a project photographing refugees.

The exhibition tells the stories of refugees who have come to London in very different circumstances but all were fleeing from situations where their lives were in danger.

World City: Refugee Stories presents the stories of nine individuals, each from a different country, who have come to London to find refuge over nine decades, from the 1930s through to the present. Each individual has a distinct story to tell, yet there are common threads that link their experiences. The refugees’ stories demonstrate courage and resilience, a commitment to building a new life and to making a positive difference.

The exhibition shows portraits of the refugees in their London homes with objects that have special meaning for them.

The Wallace Collection, Arms and Armour Photography

It has taken many years to complete photography of the European Arms and Armour held at The Wallace Collection. The process involved many experiments with lighting, diffusion, object positioning and general DIY. Every image is the result of much trial and some minor error, and I truly believe that it could never have worked in any other way.

RAF Museum Cockpit Photographs

Here is a selection of photographs of cockpits from historic aircraft that are in the care of the RAF Museum, Hendon. The photographer was Iain Duncan.

RCHAMS Glass plate negative digitisation

One of the many glass plate collections which have been digitised by RCAHMS is that of Francis Caird Inglis & Son. An Edinburgh firm of that spanned three generations of professional photographers.

Alexander Adam Inglis acquired the Rock House studio at Calton Hill in 1876. This was Hill and Adamson’s original studio, and the company would remain there until 1949 holding a Royal Warrant from 1907.

Subjects vary with professional portraits, commercial interiors, street scenes and architectural surveys. It includes a large survey of the Scottish National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle during construction.

Our collection consists of over 1500 photographs the majority 10×12 glass plates, which until recently were stored in their original wooden crates.
