Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Marcel Safier has not received any gifts yet
I am a photographic historian and collector of 19th century photographica based in Brisbane, Australia. My interest is firstly in Australian photographic history, but I have a substantial interest in photography in many other parts of the world, and I am interested in the history of the carte de visite, cabinet photo and family photograph albums in particular. I am a contributor to the database of photographers of Great Britain and Ireland 1840-1940 www.cartedevisite.co.uk and I am interested in the migration of British and Irish photographers to other countries and of photographers that migrated to Great Britain and Ireland from elsewhere.
Cased images of Australian aborigines are few and far between so the discovery of six images, three daguerreotypes and three ambrotypes in the Mill Cottage Museum in Port Lincoln, South Australia is particularly exciting news.
