When photography appeared shortly before 1840, the metal-plate daguerreotype, invented in France, was first to achieve popularity. But the process simultaneously developed in England for capturing an image on a paper negative—from which many positives could be printed—provided the foundation on which photography would build for the next 150 years.
The exhibition and its catalogue reveal a previously unrecognised artistic flourishing of the British Calotype among British photographers working on several continents in the 1840s and 1850s.
