Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The latest issue of British Art Studies carries two papers of interest to photo-historians. As noted earlier Luke Gartlan's 'Inventing Provinciality: St Andrews and the Global Networks of Early Victorian Photography' which examines the advent of photography in the Scottish university town of St Andrews in the context of local ties to the British Empire.
The second paper is Margaret J. Schmitz's 'Capturing Futurity: The Artistic Exchange of Alvin Langdon Coburn and H. G. Wells' which demonstrates that Coburn’s experimentation with radical aesthetics began before 1910 and was instigated by his friendship with English science fiction writer, Wells.
Both are available free of charge here: https://britishartstudies.ac.uk/issues/issue-index/issue-23
