Life Through a Royal Lens


Interesting to see this brand new collection of images of the Royal Family dating back to Queen Victoria who was an early adopter. A media savvy royal household has quickly understood the ability of images to set a narrative that transcends words.

Despite the advent of videography, images retain their ability to promote iconography which our social media hungry world is more than happy to consume.

Queen Elizabeth II is a keen photographer and has been seen with an extensive range of Leica cameras.

It’s interesting to note that despite the Queen’s enthusiasm towards photography, none of her images have been released for public display.
