Fascinated by photography? Join Anna Sparham, curator of the first ever exhibition dedicated solely to Christina Broom, for an evening examining the work of the woman considered the UK’s first female press photographer.

Anna will be joined by women’s history specialist Di Atkinson and Edwardian postcard expert Guy Atkins to discuss the intriguing and changing role of the image in Edwardian society in Christina Broom Close Up. The event will be chaired by UK based documentary photographer and writer, Lewis Bush.

After the talk enjoy an after-hours viewing of the exhibition and discover life through Christina Broom's lens including many never-before-seen photographs from parades of World War I soldiers and Suffragette processions to royal occasions and sporting events, as well as the picture postcards of London that brought her substantial commercial success until her death in 1939.

Christina Broom: Close Up takes place on Thursday 25 June, 7-8pm at Museum of London Docklands. The exhibition will be open until 10pm (and Rum and Sugar next door is open till 1am!)
