Bristol Photographic Fair to see vintage images on display
Vintage photographs from around the world will be on display at the inaugural Bristol Photograph Fair.
Specialist photograph dealers from the UK and Europe will present a wide range of historic images spanning 150 years from the mid-19th Century.
Examples of vintage photographic processes such as lantern slides and stereographs will also be on show.
The event takes place on Sunday at The Royal Photographic Society in the Paintworks from 10:00 to 16:00 GMT.
Organiser Hugh Rayner described the fair as" an entirely new, and somewhat experimental event".
He said subjects on display would include landscapes, portraiture and social and military history.
"I thought that it was high time to see if there are a body of photograph collectors in the wider area who might not normally venture as far as London in search of photographs, but might be tempted to come to Bristol," he said.
"The offer by the Royal Photographic Society to use their local headquarters made Bristol the obvious venue.
"There will be a wide range of fine early photography on offer, of the west country and from all around the world."
