British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

As part of this year's Wisbech Photographic Festival, Peckover House in Wisbech will be showing an exhibition on William Fox Talbot, the British inventor and pioneer of photography. The exhibition entitled "Children in camera: 1860s photographs from the pioneer photographer" has been kindly put together by the National Trust's Lacock Abbey, the birthplace of Talbot. Other exhibitions are also being held at the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum and the Wisbech Institute.

Details of the Festival, including the Talbot exhibition, can be found here.
