Hello, Professor Hamber.


I am studying the processes of photomechanical reproduction in the nineteenth century in Brazil. Read your texts over England and I have a question: how was the photographer’s situation in the second half of the nineteenth centrury? Here in Brazil, we had some photographers like Leuzinger or Marc Ferrez who were highly respected and famous in the second half of the nineteenth. And in England? Just the image was ‘a celebrity’ or the photographer was a celebrity too?
