Welcome to the British photographic history blog which was launched at the start of 2009. There are now almost 3000 members, in addition to many other regular readers. They range from museum and gallery curators, photographic academics, students, collectors, dealers and representatives from the photographic press from around the world. The blog provides a forum for news of events and happenings within the British photographic history community. This can include lectures or meetings, exhibition news, jobs and general news affecting collections of photographic material or individuals within the field. BPH will also include relevant book and website reviews from time to time. While the focus is on Britain it may, on occasion, include material that is of wider interest from Europe, the United States and Asia.

Over two-days a series of papers will discuss different aspects of French paper negatives including their history, their production and conservation. French institutions and museums hold impressive collections of negatives, and this conference is a way to look at these objects from several perspectives.
