China through the lens of John Thomson

Stunning photographs of China in the 1860s and 1870s taken by the legendary photographer

2 November 2018 –  2 June 2019 |

The Russell-Cotes autumn exhibition, opening on 2 November, will feature the stunning photographs of China in the 1860s and 1870s taken by legendary photographer, John Thomson (1837 – 1921).

Thomson spent four years photographing the regions of China and produced iconic photographs of people and places.  Such is the range, depth and aesthetic quality of his work that he is regarded as one of the most influential photographers of his generation.

Visitors will see iconic photographs of China reproduced on a large, sometimes life-size, scale accompanied by objects collected by Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes on their visit to China a decade later.

Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, East Cliff Promenade, Bournemouth, BH1 3AA
