In a public talk on 27 November 2012 at the RIBA, curator Justine Sambrook, using material ranging from hand-tinted 19th-century lantern slides to the work of some of today’s most respected contemporary architectural photographers, took a closer look at the history of colour in architectural photography. The items all came from the architectural collections of the RIBA or the online database RIBApix. The talk is linked to the current exhibition The Polychrome Lens: Colour in Architectural Photography taking place at the British Architectural Library, RIBA, London, until 4 May 2013. Entry to the Library and the rest of the building is free.
