History of Photography in 40 Photographs .....

Forty photographs have been selected from the National Photography Collection (National Media Museum) to give an overview of the history and development of photography in the West. From Fox Talbot's earliest calotypes to Richard Billingham's Untitled (Flying Cat), these photographs provide a fascinating glimpse at this diverse subject. The selection features key images drawn from their holdings of mainly British photographers. Each photograph is accompanied by some background information about the photographer and the image.

I love the daguerreotype of Julia Cameron and her daughter.  The only daguerreotype found on the National Media Museum website.  Unfortunately, not selected for this exhibition.

An intriguing and contentious selection. Daguerreotypes are conspicuously absent. Happy New year all!
