John Thomson became RGS Instructor in Photography in 1886. He was a pioneer in the application of photography.
Using his own words and examples of his negatives from the Wellcome Collection and items from for the Society’s Collections, Dr Michael Pritchard, Deborah Ireland and Betty Yao, show how Thomson applied photography to the science of geography, to guide and influence a new generation of travellers.
