Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Publication: Secure the Shadow. Somerset Photographers 1839-1939

This new publication by Robin Ansell, Allan Collier and Phil Nichols is not just a dating guide to old photographs, but is also a celebration of Somerset’s photographic history, as seen through the lives and work of nearly 800 photographers. It will appeal to family, local, social and photographic historians, including collectors, as a reliable and indispensable reference source on the subject.

The accompanying DVD contains more than 1,500 images and mini-biographies of each of the photographers. All three authors have experience in local history research and are keen photography collectors.
