To celebrate two momentous centenaries – 100 years since Cunard was the first cruise line to introduce on-board photographers, and 100 years since their first round the world voyage, Cunard is launching an online photography exhibition, curated by world-renowned photographer and filmmaker Mary McCartney.  

Together with a selection of photos submitted by guests who have travelled with us over the years, the unique exhibition, titled ‘Sea Views’ will feature never before seen imagery from the Cunard archives – including photos of Hollywood icons such as Elizabeth Taylor and Bing Crosby! Cunard will be opening up their archives to select photographs that showcase the glamour, grandeur and timeless style for which Cunard has become famous.

Siân Wilks, Cunard Archivist at the University of Liverpool Library, said:

With over 14,000 images stored in the Cunard archives in Liverpool – the founding home port of Cunard Line – we have a wealth of memories from the 1920s to present day to choose from. We are extremely excited to work alongside Mary McCartney to launch the Sea Views exhibition.”

In addition to the archived photos that will be exhibited, Cunard is calling on guests to share any photographs they may have collected over the years when travelling on board a Cunard ship, capturing special moments, amazing views and unique experiences. All images shared will be reviewed, with selected images to be part of this rare, centennial exhibition.

British photographer, Mary McCartney said:

“ I’m pleased to curate an exhibition within this treasure trove of 100 years of on-board photography.  I’m looking forward to exploring the archives and the crowdsourced images to hand pick a portfolio of iconic images that will reflect a century of luxury travel.”
