In The Press
'An extraordinary collection of images, drawn from virtually every photographic genre since 1840 ... the best, most aesthetically pleasing, but not necessarily the best-known images ever captured on film, salt prints and calotypes. If Century was Bruce Bernard's most expansive work, One Hundred Photographs is his most personal.' (The Sunday Times Magazine)
