Revealing the Archive
In 2019, the National Trust is launching a new two-year project to explore, catalogue, conserve and share the outstanding Edward Chambré Hardman Photographic Archive.

Andrew Morrison, National Trust’s Lead Curator and project sponsor, said:
“Photography is an exceptionally accessible medium, without barriers to language or culture; inspiring curiosity, discussion and exploration. We are so grateful to Archives Revealed and the National Trust for this funding which will enable us to finally catalogue and conserve this important collection and start sharing its secrets with a wider audience. We think Hardman’s work will be relevant and interesting to many people, including new audiences who will be able to use his photographs as an entry point to exploring their own links with the past.”
