Fishermen & Kings at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery
Exhibition, Sat 8 Oct 2016 - Sun 22 Jan 2017
Fishermen & Kings
The life and work of British photographer Olive Edis (1876-1955) is celebrated this specially curated exhibition, the first ever dedicated to Edis 50 year-long career.
Featuring more than 190 rare photographs and related material, it showcases Edis’ wide-ranging portraiture from British royalty to simple Norfolk fishermen, together with her important work as the first-ever accredited female war photographer. Edis was only the 5th official British photographer to visit Europe to cover WW1 and her atmospheric photographs capture the devastation that followed the Great War.
In addition, the exhibition reveals the technical development of Edis’ work and examines her outstanding contribution to the history of photography. It is part of the on-going Olive Edis project, which aims to raise awareness of this pioneering photographer.
