Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art has published a short film interviewing Wilfried E. Keil who was Rome Fellow at the British School Room from April-June 2021. During this time he used the BSR's extensive photographic archive to closely examine Robert Mcpherson's original photographs. He made a number of discoveries including an unknown photographic technique, new provenances and even a nineteenth-century thumbprint.
Watch this film to find out more about the importance of experiencing source material up close and personal. This project was supported by a Rome Fellowship.
