Margaret Mountford travels to Egypt’s Valley of the Kings to discover the story of an unsung hero of British photography – Harry Burton, the man whose images of the Tutankhamun excavation created a global sensation in the 1920s.
As she explores the spectacular locations where Burton worked, including Tutankhamun’s tomb, she investigates how his photographs inspired a craze for Egyptian designs and made the archaeologist Howard Carter an international celebrity. She discovers why Burton’s images are still studied today by Egyptologists around the world. And she works with a present-day photographer, Harry Cory Wright, to find out how Burton pushed the boundaries of photographic art to create his extraordinary and influential pictures of the world’s most famous archaeological discovery.
If you attend any of my photography workshops, whether in the classroom or exploring our beautiful planet, be assured I take your safety seriously.
Already holding my Emergency First Aid at work certificate, I’m today enhancing my First Aid training with Evince Training Limited to a higher level, a 3-day First Aid at work course, to include such topics, what to do if you broke your leg or have an eye infection while in the middle of our stunning Exmoor National Park.
I’ve asked for a custom first aid kit to be designed for us, to deal with photography eventualities that I will be trained for; for example we are standing in an Exmoor stream you wash your hands, then splash your face as it’s a hot day, but you get a foreign body in your eye.
