Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition: John Beasley Greene / until 2 December 2016

Born in 1832 in Le Havre, France, to American parents, the photographer John Beasley Greene was a student of the noted photographer Gustave Le Gray in Paris, who, as author and historian Eugenia Parry writes, was “a magician of change who inspired and shaped the genius of John Beasley Greene.” Greene’s unusual still lives made on a rooftop in Paris, probably during his studies with Le Gray, show the beginnings of his enchanted eye.

This exhibition at Hans P. Kraus Photographs features a rare group of more than 25 waxed paper negatives and salt prints exhibited for the first time.
