SALT & SILVER--Early PHOTOGRAPHY--1840-1860 (post no.158)
The new exhibition dedicated to the earliest form of photography – salted paper prints that were taken between 1840 and 1860 — is set to open at London’s Tate Britain Museum. William Henry Fox Talbot unveiled this unique photography process in 1839. This beautiful collection of images, curated in association with the Wilson Centre for photography, charts the infancy of the art form. Join us as we look at a selection of the amazing historic images from the show.
