Fishermen and Kings: The Photography of Olive Edis
8 Oct 2016 – 22 Jan 2017
Exploring the work of the pioneering yet little-known 20th century photographer.
The first woman ever accredited as an official war photographer, Edis captured the battlefields of France and Flanders during the early decades of the 1900s.
Back home in England her subjects ranged from notable figures of British royalty and aristocracy to the craggy-faced fishermen of north Norfolk.
Norfolk Museum Service holds the largest collection of Edis’ work in the world, and this exhibition features more than 190 rarely-seen images taken by the photographer between 1900-55.
