Label for 'Making It Up: Photographic Fictions' (3 May 2013 - 12 January 2014): Terry Towery (born 1963) View of Crimean War Battle Scene, by Timothy Eugene O’Tower (1829–1905) 2006 This photograph is by Timothy Eugene O’Tower, a 19th-century photographer whose work was recently ‘discovered’ by his descendant Terry Towery. O’Tower’s work and his biography bear an uncanny resemblance to that of several other Victorian photographers. He is in fact a figment of Towery’s imagination. The photographs show table-top constructions masquerading as landscapes. Platinotype Given by Terry Towery and the Michael Mazzeo Gallery Museum no. E.195-2010
