It is 200 years since Lord Byron visited Chillon Castle, immediately publishing The Prisoner of Chillon, that includes:

Dim with a dull imprisoned ray,
A sunbeam which hath lost its way,
And through the crevace and the cleft
of the thick wall is fallen and left

Photography in Support of Research

The aim of a great deal of John Lumby's photography in recent years has been to provide side-by-side comparative images in support of Prue Bishop's research papers in which she has provided subjects of many sketches by J M W Turner for the first time. For the most recent publications, please see Prue Bishop's research papers in London's British Art Journal - Summer 2015 and Spring 2016 editions.
