Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The announcement in The Chemist (March, 1851) of Frederick Scott Archer’s wet-collodion process transformed how photography was practiced professionally and by amateur photographers for much of the nineteenth century.

This has been supported by a growing number of practical workshops allowing people to experience and learn about the process.
