Roger Fenton 
Flowers and Fruit 
1860 (ca) 
Albumen print, from wet collodion negative 
35 x 43 cm 
National Science and Media Museum 
Royal Photographic Society Collection 
Fenton abandoned photography in 1861, the year after he had made an astounding series of still life photographs in which he reached technical perfection. Many of these rich, bloomy, albumen prints are in mint condition still. printed from 20 x 16 inch glass negatives, the detail of each flower petal, each grain of pollen, has never been bettered.
