Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

A key event in the birth of photography is being celebrated with illuminations at the place depicted in one of the first photographic negatives. The lights are part of the second Illuminating Lacock Abbey light festival by the National Trust and marks a year celebrating Fox Talbot's achievements.

Kristine Heuser, from the National Trust,said the theme of the display was "The Window" to celebrate the window at Lacock Abbey depicted in Fox Talbot's photographic negative. The medieval cloisters, the driveway and the exterior of Lacock Abbey will be transformed with colour and light.

Illuminating Lacock Abbey runs from 16:00 to 19:00 GMT every evening until 9 February. You can read more here and here.
