Exhibition: 19th Century British Photographs

This exhibition of photographs from the National Gallery of Canada is the third in a series of survey exhibitions that examine iconic works from the Photographs Collection and situate them within a historical and social context. Photographs by some of the medium’s earliest practitioners, including William Henry Fox Talbot, Hill and Adamson, Anna Atkins, and Julia Margaret Cameron, will be featured. The exhibition’s approximately 100 works will present examples of several different photographic processes, among them salted paper prints, daguerreotypes, albumen silver prints, collotypes, carbon prints, and woodburytypes.


Details of the exhibition can be found here. A book to accompany the exhibition will also be published towards the end of Jan 2011, and can be found on the Amazon link on the right.
