Long ago in a faraway land...♥️ I had two weeks to travel Italy and fell in love with Venice. So there I stayed. A magical place unlike anywhere I’ve ever traveled. After all these years it still calls me back. One day. Photo by moi 📷

Week 31 (September 20, 2018) Images 1 and 2 of 2
Two country folk on wagon
Circa 1895. Here we see a wagon with country folk in the Livonian region. Once an Order that sprawled most of the southern half of Estonian and all of Latvia since the 13th century, Livonia has slowly been reduced to an area of culture split between Latvia and Estonia. The Livonian language is spoken by fewer than 100 individuals as a second language, and is understood to be fast approaching extinction. The last native Livonian speaker died in June 2013.

Hyppolite Bayard. Self-portrait as a Drowned Man, 1840. Direct paper positive.

In protest against the censorship imposed on his paper printing technique for political reasons, Bayard depicts his own suicide.

This beautiful photo of algae floating in a sea of cyan blue is taken from the first ever book to be published with photogrpahs. Anna Atkins’ Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions was filled with images like this, each captured using the new cyanotype method invented by Sir John Herschel in 1842. The new way of photographic printing used a light sensitive solution-coated paper, (treated with ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide) upon which specimens could be placed under a light or in the sun. After washing it left a negative impression against a brilliant background sea of cyan - perfect for illustrating a collection of seaweed.

Atkins, who knew both Herschel and father of photography, Henry Fox Talbot, began photographing her collection of British algae and seaweed, distributing the results to her friends between 1843 and 1853. Today this pioneering book seems like a beautiful work of art as much as botanical study and cyanotype printing (which was also a popular way of producing engineering drawings - called 'blueprints') is once again a resurgent artform. This particular image, 'Dictyota dichotoma, in the young state and in fruit', comes from the Horniman Museum's copy of the rare book, which they will be displaying as part of an installation developed by artist Serena Korda and members of the local community in their new artspace, 'The Studio’, which opens to the public on Saturday October 20. #victorian #photography #algae #cyanotype #sirjohnherschel #earlyphotography #instamuseum #collections

The British photography pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot died on this day in 1877 so we thought we would post a rare example of early photography from our collections.

Here is a calotype or 'talbotype' waxed paper negative showing the Crown and Woolpack Inn, Glatton, Cambridgeshire taken c.1853 by J. M. Heathcote of Conington. Huntingdonshire Archives Ref.4439. Swipe to see positive image.
