British Museum


This is the largest picture collection I currently offer: a total of 5110 photographs showing every Egyptian object currently (as of early 2019) on public display in the British Museum. This represents ten full days’ photography at the museum. You may think that you know the British Museum well, but I guarantee that you’ll find objects in this collection that will surprise and delight you. Most people who visit the museum visit the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery on the ground floor, then walk through the mummy rooms on the second floor, but have you ever stopped and had a really close look at all the objects in the wall cases in those rooms? It’s understandable if you haven’t – it’s generally so impossibly crowded that it’s not a place you want to stay long. This collection gives you the chance to closely examine every single object in those displays, and is a “must” for every Egyptophile.
