|19th century Portrait photography|
|13 October - 11 December 2005|
Watercolour room, Fairfax Galleries, Ground Level
From the anonymous sitters reflected in the mirrored surface of a daguerreotype to the evocative portraits of David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, Reflections in time explores the changes that occurred to international photographic portraiture from 1839 to 1900. The exhibition, drawn from the Gallery's international collection and supplemented by loans from private collectors, also includes work by Julia Margaret Cameron, Napoleon Sarony, John Thomson and Baron von Stillfried.
