All images shared will be evaluated, with chosen images to be part of this uncommon, centennial exhibit.
“I’m happy to curate an exhibition within this gold mine of 100 years of on board photography. I’m anticipating exploring the archives and the crowdsourced images to hand select a portfolio of iconic images that will show a century of high-end travel,” said British professional photographer, Mary McCartney
“We’re incredibly proud of Cunard’s 183-year history and especially of the fact we pioneered the round-the-world trip 100 years back. What better way to celebrate this centenary anniversary than by curating a fantastic selection of images from our guests who’ve taken a trip with us. We’re happy to be dealing with the fantastic Mary McCartney to develop this exhibit and can’t wait to see the memorable moments that our visitors have actually caught throughout the years,” said Sture Myrmell, Cunard President.
