Inventing Photography | Author: Geoffrey Batchen
William Henry Fox Talbot is celebrated today as the English inventor of photography. He made early photographic experiments in the 1830s, released the details of his photogenic drawing process in January 1839, and introduced important innovations to the medium in the 1840s and 1850s.
Drawing on archive material in the Bodleian Library,?as well as his illustrated books,?this volume shows how Talbot was continually inventing photography anew. A selection of eighty full-page plates provides a thematic survey of Talbot?s work, reproducing images that document his travels, his home and his family, as well as his intellectual interests, from science to literature to ancient languages.
