19th Century Photographic Studios
Curated by
Alan Griffiths
The purpose of this exhibition is to provide a starting point for the understanding of how photographers and studios marketed themselves in the nineteenth century. The exhibition includes both images and texts to assist in this and a preliminary classification, which will be improved over time, is included to aid discussion. Your ideas for improvement are always welcome.
Curatorial comment
This exhibition includes mostly English language material as that is largely the content I have access to. I'd welcome collaborations with collectors and collections from any part of the world and in any language to ensure that this exhibition is as inclusive as possible.
