Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Event: photograph album from Natal, South Africa / Oxford, 30 January 2022

This short talk presents research on a rare early photograph album from mid-1860s Natal, South Africa, which contains around 50 portraits of African subjects, with inscriptions by its owner, representing the first few years of studio output in Natal in the new affordable format of cartes-de-visite. The talk will explore the album's contents and present some of the tantalising research findings that have emerged so far.
