Europe in the 19th Century 

This introduction is only a starting point for what will evolve into a far more structured study of Europe as seen through the eyes of 19th century photographers.
Themes that will be explored include:
  • The agrarian context and its glorification in photography
  • Urban change [Annan, Marville, Atget]
  • The rise of industrialization
  • The symbols of progress, railways etc., in the rural landscape [Collard]
  • The nostalgia for that which was being lost and the links to Naturalism [Emerson, Sutcliffe]
I‘d welcome insights on these topics and suggestions for others that should be included.
