Roy Hungerford

Roy Hungerford's niece Shenagh telephoned yesterday to tell us that Roy died earlier this week at the age of 94.Members of the Historical Group of the RPS will have noted that the committee until recently included Roy as responsible for 'queries'. This was appropriate as he had a deep independent scholar's knowledge of historic cameras and lenses and he knew how to use them.He was ready to pass on his knowledge to students and scholars around the world.

Terry King at Hands-On Pictures Studio

May 17, 2012 from 6pm to 7pm
We have a workshop on 12 & 13 June on  making prints on metal using asphaltum or, as Niepce called it, bitumen of Judea. We will treat one of the metal plates in such a way that the photograph will look like 'the first photograph' by Niepce now in the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. We may coat another plate over an aquatint and then etch and ink it to produce an image in ink on paper.We will also make prints onto leather in the style of Thomas Wedgwood as described in his 1804 paper to the…See More
