British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Bonhams will be holding an auction of photographs on Tuesday 16th November which will contain a key group of 19th century platinum prints on the Norfolk Broads by British artist, anthropologist, scientist and historian, Peter Henry Emerson, including 'Gathering Water-Lilies', 1886 (estimate £10,000 - £15,000).

These prints - revered by collectors for the depth of tone in the final image - are taken from Emerson's photo album 'Life and Landscape on the Norfolf Broads' published in the 1880s.

If the austerity cuts haven't reached your wallet yet, details of the lots and auction can be found here.
