Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The University of St Andrews has an annual visiting scholar programme and the five 2018 recipients have a series of blogs reporting on their work.Of particular interest to BPH is José Luís Neves from Ulster University who was looking at the impact of photographic printing processes upon visual narrative in photobook form between 1840 and 1880. José used the collection of photographically illustrated books at the University of St. Andrews Library to establish a correlation between photographic printing processes and the apparent scarceness of cumulative and relational visual narratives in late nineteenth- and early twentieth century photobook production.
