Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

Frederick Hollyer adapted new technical developments in photography to create a unique visual record of London life at the dawn of the 20th century. His portrait photographs offer us a glimpse into late-Victorian and Edwardian celebrity culture. The Victoria and Albert Museum holds a remarkable collection of Hollyer portraits - nearly 200 platinum prints contained in three chintz-covered albums - and also some of his reproductions.
