Publication: Snips & Snaps: the Friths...

Just alerting people to the recent publication of "Snips & snaps : the Friths : a nineteenth century family of portraitists, miniaturists, caricaturists and photographic artists" by Noel Tozer which looks at the Frith siblings - Frederick, Henry and Letitia - Australian (and New Zealand, in the case of Henry) photographers, and their earlier lives as silhouettists and artists.

The book is available through Amazon and selected museum bookshops.

  • What I found fascinating in the process of providing some help to Noel with his book was the Frith family's background as silhouette artists (in England and Scotland) before moving into photography. I wonder if many other photographers hads this background? The book is very attractively produced and the extensive research was a real labour of love by Noel, a Frith descendant. This family is not related to Francis Frith of Reigate.
