Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Royal Astronomical Society has announced the death of Peter Hingley, the Librarian at its Burlington House headquarters. Peter had an extraordinary knowledge of historical astronomical documents and will be missed by all who knew him. Although not a photographic historian per se Hingley had a detailed knowledge of photography and how it related to astronomy (see: http://www.ras.org.uk/library/images) along with personalities who straddled both disciplines. He published and lectured on early photography and astronomy.
