Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Regular BPH readers will be aware of the general story of the Quillan Leaf. Some of you may have attended the recent Rethinking Early Photography conference at the University of Lincoln where Professor Larry Schaaf, gave a public lecture which, for the first time, told the story of the leaf. It presented the outcome of further research which identified the likely author of the leaf image, adding a new name to British photography's early canon.
BPH is pleased to provide exclusive advance access to a video of Schaaf's lecture at the link here http://youtu.be/iP3sloApu50: or below and titled The Damned Leaf: Musings on History, Hysteria and Historiography.
BPH offers its thanks to Professor Schaaf, Dr Owen Clayton, the conference organiser, and Adam O'Meara who undertook the video production.
'Professor Schaaf's talk will be made public on the conference website on Monday, with other conference keynote talks to follow - check back for a link.
