We urgently seek further sponsorship if we are to realise this huge project. The commissioned photography is our greatest outgoing. Without a professional photograph we cannot publish the pictures we have traced.

On average a single photographic commission costs £200. We source the photographer as locally as possible and they travel to the place where the portrait hangs. This can be in cottages and castles, in locations from the Welsh Marches to Bucharest. The professional photography alone is likely to cost around £500,000 but £1,000 would pay for five commissions or a day’s photography and would mean a great deal to us, as would £200 for a single commission.
