Royal Photographic Society exhibition
“I was delighted with the strong support for the under 25 section and most impressed by the standard of the photographs. As one who has encouraged young photographers over the years I was also delighted to see that a number of photographs from this section made it into the main exhibition”. Roger Reynolds - Hon FRPS - Selector & Past President. The Royal Photographic Society is the foremost Photographic Society in the world. It was founded in 1853, when photography was in its infancy, and has been a leading force in its advancement ever since. This year The Royal Photographic Society is celebrating 150 years of staging The International Print Exhibition, the longest standing exhibition of its kind anywhere in the world. Throughout its long history it has maintained a reputation for exhibiting a wide range of photographic taste and outlook. This has ensured that it is unique within the photographic world.

Retrospective exhibition
To celebrate this special anniversary, the Society will be showcasing a Retrospective Exhibition which will include images and text on the historical aspect of the Exhibition, with examples from each decade, to be shown alongside the 150th International Print Exhibition. “It was indeed a great pleasure and privilege to chair the selection panel in choosing the images to make up The Society’s 150th International Exhibition. Undoubtedly this annual exhibition is the most visible form of The Society’s dedication to the promotion internationally of photography. I feel that the exhibition reflects much that is happening in the photographic world today”. Bill Wisden - Hon FRPS - Chair of Selectors
