Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Along with a group of other keenly interested visitors we were treated to a feast of wonderful Fox Talbot and Calotype treasures (Including access to the fantastic Hill and Adamson Album).
On the train in to London in the morning I typed Fox Talbot into my Kindle store search engine and was delighted to find the text of the Pencil of Nature can be downloaded as a free edition. Having just read Talbots narrative in which he looks forward in places far sightedly to the possibilities that photography would offer in the future, I had the privilege to hold a copy of the book in my hands only a few hours later! Amazing.
Many Thanks John for both your excellent presentation and the chance to see these treasures first hand.
