Trafalgar Square and St. Martin-in-the-Fields. George Davison (1854-1930) began to make photographs in 1885, when he joined the Camera Club photography society. The next year, he became a member of the Royal Photographic Society. Peter Henry Emerson was a major influence in his early work. Davisons’ photographs became an object of controversy in the Royal Photographic Society, and in 1892, he decided to leave the society and to establish a new organisation, The Linked Ring Brotherhood. Davidson became a deputy director of Kodak in 1898, and the director two years later.
