Event Description

The exhibition, Early British Masters in Photography, by Hans P. Kraus, Jr. Fine Photographs will include works by William Henry Fox Talbot, Hill & Adamson, Anna Atkins, Roger Fenton, Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, and Alvin Langdon Coburn.

Among the highlights of Early British Masters in Photography will be a rare album by Scottish photographers David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson. The Bicknell Album contains 100 exquisite salt prints of Hill & Adamson’s most celebrated images from 1843 to 1847 and is the only known large presentation album of their work still in private hands. The exhibition at Masterpiece London marks the first time it will be on view to the British public.

Hi Michael,

Looks very interesting so I will do my best to get there. Lets talk nearer the time.

I have started reading 'How to buy photographs' by Stuart Bennett. It covers some interesting stuff. Less historical and more technical at this stage but I have only just started it.
