A Tangle after a Storm by Walter Benington about 1908

Walter Benington (1872–1936) was a British photographer whose work is heavily represented in the National Portrait Gallery. Walter Benington started his photographic career while still at school. The snapping of groups and friends soon palled, and he took up platinotype printing and pictorial landscape work. His first real success was a picture entitled Among the Housetops, which was exhibited in 1893, and this was responsible for him being invited to join the Linked Ring, in whose annual shows he was regularly represented. In 1927 Benington began working for the photographic studio Elliott & Fry as a freelance portrait photographer. His sitters included Ellen Terry, Albert Einstein and Arthur Conan Doyle.
