The Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) is the UK’s learned Society and professional body for geography and geographers. It has charitable status and is also a membership organisation with over 16,000 Fellows and Members. The Society is one of the largest – and recognised as the most active – scholarly geographical societies in the world.

Photography has been at the heart of the Society’s work for over 130 years, led by John Thomson, FRGS, who was the first photo-journalist in modern times, a photographer working in a documentary style and bringing awareness of the people and places of the Far East, and later street London, to nineteenth century audiences for the first time. Earth Photo will draw on the Society’s photographic heritage of over 500,000 images held within its Collections, from the earliest daguerreotype image of 1851 to the latest work by contemporary photographers.
