Albert and Victoria’s collection shows photographers’ working methods

Landscape, nature and architecture

In the 1850s Prince Albert and Queen Victoria commissioned various photographers to capture the places that were of significance to them. Such interest produced a significant collection of glass plate negatives of landscapes and architectural studies of royal residences, as well as negatives of pets and of various animals kept at their farms or on the grounds of their estates.
