Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I know that it's a few years since we had this discussion, but now that the RPS has the online archive of the Journal, it is very interesting to be able to search the archive, and put some of what has been written here into context.
The March 1946 edition of the Photographic Journal contains a report and a discussion of Hugo van Wadenoyen's views of Pictorialism, which were given at a meeting of the Pictorial Group, in Dec 1945.
Well worth reading... http://archive.rps.org/archive/volume_086/83521
There's an interesting article here: http://archive.rps.org/view/76794 from 1953 mentioning the Combined Societies.
