MOST RECENT

1883: With modern dry gelatin photographic plates replacing the cumbersome wet plate (collodion) process around 1881, the Scovill company through their publications including the Photographic Times began marketing in earnest complete and affordable amateur outfits to the masses. This fashionably dressed lady amateur, appearing as early as 1883 as a wood engraving in Scovill's catalogue: "How to Make Photographs", advertised their "Amateur Photographic Requisites". For the grand sum of $10.00, a photographer could obtain "Favorite Outfit A": an adjustable 4 x 5 Scovill plate camera, "Waterbury" achromatic nickel plated lens, a Taylor folding tripod, a double dry plate holder for the camera and carrying case. After becoming the Scovill & Adams company in 1889, the firm developed other popular mass market cameras including the Henry Clay and Solograph models as well as many others. 1889 engraving from Scovill catalogue courtesy of Larry Pierce.

Soldier by Antoine Claudet (1842)
As a lifelong fan of photography, it was amazing to see this piece in the National Portrait Gallery in London. It is an example of early photography, taken in the mid 1800s.
Seeing how long it has survived, It makes me think about how we are all now so used to taking photos on our phones and never looking at them again.
What will the future be like without physical prints?
Being in the presence of this piece definitely makes me want to pick up my 35mm SLR and do some long neglected B&W processing! (I have lightened the pic for viewing purposes)

A photo from when I first started photography. Back when I didn’t know how to remove the date in the lower right hand corner. 🙈 Despite the year I took it, it’s still one of my favorites. .

The first summer people in the nineteenth century on Marblehead Neck were from the Nashua New Hampshire and lived in platform tents during their summer escape. They soon started to buy section of farmland and built small summer cottages to escape the inland summer heat. This photo is from about 1870-74. A few of their cottages survive. #marbleheadneck #marbleheadarchitecture #marblehead #marbleheadma #earlyphotography #camping #tentcamping #nashua

Young Africa - Or the Bone of Contention (slightly cropped out in this image). Published in 1862 by well known early Photographer, E. Anthony. This Carte de Visite image had a pendant entitled Young America showing a crying blonde child. These 2 images were a commentary on the greatest crisis the United States had ever known and was painfully experiencing. It is interesting to note that this image was a beat seller in both the North and the South. King Dom Pedro I of Brazil purchased an album containing these images on his visit to the US In 1876. The images are still in a museum in Brazil. This CDV is a bit out of my collection of New Orleans CDV’s but it somehow fits nicely. #CDV #cartedevisite #earlyphotography #history #collection #collecting #MaisonVitry

The subjects of these three photographs are Prince Hall Masons, but otherwise they are unidentified. The center photograph is dated circa 1900-1915, and has a photographer stamp on the back that credits E.M. Robinson, transient photographer. The left and right cabinet card photographs are undated, and they both have a photographer stamp that says E.M. Robinson, 1116 Perdido St.
.
That is all we know of the photographer and the subjects 😕 Who is this E.M. Robinson? Do you know?

Early photography is fascinating; Provost was experimenting with a new technique for bringing out small details here.

The @nationalportraitgallery ‘Victorian Giants’ takeover continues with Assistant Curator of Photographs Dr Gerlind Lorch sharing her picks of the 19th century from our own Hulton Archive.

Previously it had been assumed that Julia Margaret Cameron took up photography relatively late in life, when at the age of 48 she was given a camera. However, new evidence suggests that she had already experimented with photography about ten years prior to this. This portrait of Cameron is attributed to Oscar Rejlander. It is not known exactly how both photographers became acquainted in the first place. We do know that early in Cameron’s career, Rejlander visited her home at Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight, and that the two collaborated on a series of pictures.
__
The work of Oscar Rejlander and Julia Margaret Cameron is explored alongside Lady Clementina Hawarden and Lewis Carroll in ‘Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography’. The acclaimed exhibition is open now until 20 May at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
