EPUK Editorial Photographers United Kingdom and Ireland. The private mailing list and public resource for editorial photographers

Fleet St archive on show

The photographs that graced newspaper pages during Fleet Street’s heyday of 1900 to 1982 are to go on show at the National Portrait Gallery next month reports the PressGazette.

The exhibition, Daily Encounters, which is supported by Getty Images, opens on 5 July and chronicles both the changes in the relationship between public figures and the press as celebrity culture developed and the impact of newspaper photography on the opinions and tastes of a mass audience.

Politicians, stars and royalty are included in the 90 photographs as well as ordinary people, often taken by photographers of their own class, reflecting the appeal of the popular press to a new generation that had benefited from improved education.

What is EPUK?
