Echoes of a Vanished World

A Lifetime in Pictures, by Robin Hanbury-Tenison

Robin Hanbury-Tenison, the “greatest explorer of the last twenty years” (Sunday Times) is also one of the founders of Survival International. As such, he has been a tireless champion of the rights of indigenous peoples and, in the early years of his travels, an obsessive photographer of their homelands as they were eroded by the modern world.

Hanbury-Tenison photographed extensively and collected objects from remote tribal people while travelling during the 50s, 60s and 70s. These objects and images were unearthed recently to create the exhibition, many having not been looked at for fifty years.

Robin Hanbury-Tenison will be giving a 45 minute illustrated talk at 3.00pm on Thursday 21st February.  Tickets are free but as places are limited they must be booked in advance with the National Theatre Box Office 020 7452 3000. Collect your tickets on arrival from the Box Office or the Information Desk.

14 January – 10 March 2013, FREE
