Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
2016 marks 175 years since the first recorded photograph, a daguerreotype, was taken in Barber's studio in Bromley House Library,Nottingham.
We would like to mount an exhibition celebrating Victorian photography in our picture gallery, in September and October this year. Unfortunately the Science museum want to charge a huge amount for each jpeg and the V and A even more.
Is anyone aware of a more generous institution that would allow us to print and exhibit some good quality images by Victorian photographers for a reasonable sum? The exhibition will be open to members and the public at no charge.
Last year we opened the Pauline Heathcote Archive, her notes used in her publications on the history of photography. In the studio we have an antique large plate studio camera on a stand with a reproduction backdrop and in the dark room a collection of antique and vintage cameras and dark room equipment as well as Pauline Heathcote's Archive.
