Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Blog: José Luís Neves at the University of St Andrews

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.

Read his blog here which looked at one of the photographic albums in the Special Collections at the University.
