I did some work on ferrotypists in the past which was published in my book on The Victorians: Photographis Portraits (1993), and also in 'Cheap Tin Trade: The Ferrotype Portrait in Victorian Britain', Photographica World, No.69…"
We are a group of students at the University of Chester and are currently working with the photographer Tom Wood to set up an exhibition of his unseen work. He mentioned that he was interviewed by you on a couple of occasions, if this is correct would there still be a record of the interview stored in an archive somewhere please?
Dear Audrey Linkman,
I hope you do not mind me writing but Mark Haworth-Booth gave me your email details and advised me to ask you, however it bounced and I thought I might find you on here quicker.
My name is Marcia Michael, I am studying MA photography at LCC (London). I am trying my best to track down an early image of a black person in Britain or /and an image made by a black photographer of a black person in Britain.
I wish to see the difference, if any of representation.
I am looking for images made from the onset of photography , so 1849 up until 1900's the earlier the better.
One of main interest are family albums that may contain images of black people. The ones that I have found to-date are the well known ones of Julia Margaret Cameron and Queen Victoria.
I don't really want to leave my email on the 'NIng' but if I leave you my web page my contact details are on there if you are happy to reply.
