Biographical informationReverend C. E. Darwent. Clergyman, author and photographer.  Charles Ewart Darwent was born in Barnard Castle, County Durham, England in 1858.  He took up the post of Minister at the Union Church, Shanghai in January 1899.  For the next twenty years he was a prominent and popular figure in Shanghai, before moving to Tianjin in 1919, where he died in 1924.  Darwent published his photographer-friendly guidebook 'Shanghai: a handbook for travellers and residents to the chief objects of interest in and around the foreign settlement and native city' in 1904.  Two years later he was a founding member and first chairman of the Shanghai Amateur Photographic Society (S.A.P.S.).  In 2009, the Historical Photographs of China project digitised an album of his own photographs (Da01), some of which had been published in his city guidebook.  The exhibition ‘Darwent Revisited: Shanghai now and then’  was inspired by the text in his guidebook and by his photographs.
