26 January 2015

A three year project to document, curate and digitise a selection of historic photography from Wales’s national collections, has culminated in a new exhibition Historic Photography Uncovered opening at National Museum Cardiff on Saturday 24 January. The Natural Images project was made possible thanks to a £600,000 gift received from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation in 2011 and the project was set out to digitise images spread across several disciplines from geology and botany to industrial history and art. Up to 10,000 images will have been digitised by the time the project ends in April 2015 and a selection of these images will be included in the new exhibition.
