Welcome...

Welcome to the British photographic history blog which was launched at the start of 2009. There are now almost 3000 members, in addition to many other regular readers. They range from museum and gallery curators, photographic academics, students, collectors, dealers and representatives from the photographic press from around the world. The blog provides a forum for news of events and happenings within the British photographic history community. This can include lectures or meetings, exhibition news, jobs and general news affecting collections of photographic material or individuals within the field. BPH will also include relevant book and website reviews from time to time. While the focus is on Britain it may, on occasion, include material that is of wider interest from Europe, the United States and Asia.

PS. Thanks to George Eastman House (now George Eastman Museum) and History Today magazine blogs for recommending British Photographic History as one of their own favourite blogs. The Daily Telegraph made BPH one of its photography websites of the week

I am trying to trace correspondence (nearly 40 years of if) between daguerreotypist Prof Leone Glukman (Dublin) and William Constable (Brighton) which I have seen reference to. Anyone know where it is?

I do know that Barnum regularly travelled to England during his career. perhaps he meant this as a kind of advertising.…
