Exhibition: Sun Pictures Then and Now: Talbot and his Legacy Today / London, 17-20 May 2018

Photo London and Hans P. Kraus Jr. are presenting an exhibition which looks at the pioneering work of the British inventor of photography William Henry Fox Talbot and the legacy of this within contemporary photography. With the opportunity to see vintage Talbot prints alongside contemporary artworks by artists and photographers including Adam Fuss, Cornelia Parker, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Mike Robinson, Vera Lutter and others, this exhibition reflects on the influence and inspiration of the inventor.

To accompany the exhibition Cornelia Parker will be speaking in conversation with Hans P. Kraus Jr., and Vera Lutter in conversation with Martin Barnes, curator V&A, as part of the Photo London Talks Programme.

PhotoLondon takes place from 17-20 May 2018 at Somerset House, London.
