Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Pictorialist Movement in photography took place in a parallel time frame to the Arts and Crafts Movement. However, though both were shunned by the academic arts establishment, the A&C movement never embraced photography, perhaps in small ways, but never fully. My take on this is that the A&C Movement was fully engulfed in Medievalism, which was antithetical to photography.
There were separate movements in Pictorial Photoraphy like the Photo-Secession or the Linked Ring, but, I cannot recall any partnering among these and the Arts and Crafts Movement.
