About

First London exhibition devoted to the Scottish photographer John Thomson (1837-1921) and his photography in Asia will be shown from 13 April - 23 June 2018 at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS. Thomson's photography of China, Siam (Thailand) and Cambodia was widely praised by his peers and continues to enthuse new audiences today. Widely credited as one of the greatest travel photographers and precursor to photo journalism, Thomson was the first photographer to record Angkor Wat and these striking images are included in the exhibition. The images are from newly discovered negatives held at the Wellcome Library, London.
