Roberts, Pam, Royal Photographic Society Staff

SUMMARY

A PHOTOGRAPHER'S LENS, remarked Edward Steichen, captures "the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and the skies that man has inherited, and the wealth - and confusion - man has created." PhotoHistorica is a testament to this truth. Drawn from The Royal Photographic Society's archives - over 270,000 images dating from 1826 to the present day - the more than 300 photographs gathered here represent and unbroken thread linking the development of photographic genres, styles, and techniques. Some of the works are instantly recognizable, some are unknowns yet offer a landmark moment through their subject matter or style. Many are published here for the first time. Highlights include one of the world's oldest photographic images; rare pieces by Stielitz, Steichen, and Coburn; selections from the world's largest collections of work by Julia Margaret Cameron and Roger Fenton; and eccentric and beautiful images from both amateur and professional photographers, PhotoHistorica puts the formation of The Royal Photographic Society into historical and cultural perspective. Divided into portraiture and domestic photography, nature and science, social documentary and architecture, and landscape and art, the book pays tribute to the enduring power of photography as it enchants and informs every reader.Roberts, Pam is the author of 'Photohistorica Landmarks in Photography Rare Images from the Collection of the Royal Photographic Society' with ISBN 9781579651695 and ISBN 1579651690.
