Wandering: a new four part podcast series of immersive gallery walks, with contemporary creatives

Broadcaster, DJ and writer Zakia Sewell walks with us in the National Portrait Gallery in London. 

Zakia reflects on how memory and legacy influence our way of seeing, and how our contemporary eyes judge the face of history. We ask, to what extent is a portrait a mirror? 

We view a photographic portrait of Sarah Forbes Bonetta (1843-80)

Room 23, Floor 2. Historian and essayist; Trustee of the National Portrait Gallery, Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) and explorer once a Governor of Jamaica, Edward John Eyre (1815-1901). Room 23, Floor 2.
