Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Professor Larry Schaaf will deliver the Royal Photographic Society Historical Group's 2020 Colin Ford Lecture providing a fascinating insight to his work on The William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonné.
Schaaf has been examining and compiling information on Talbot images worldwide for more than four decades. Beginning in 2014, with the backing of the William T Hillman Foundation, the Bodleian Libraries undertook converting these private databases into a public resource. So far, images and data on more than 16,000 photographs have been made freely available on the website. These allow individual researchers to pursue their own questions and draw their own conclusions.
Tickets are free, but seats are limited and booking is essential.
