Roger Watson, Curator

    Newer Older

    This wet plate collodion portrait shows Roger Watson, the Curator of the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock, the place where Henry Fox Talbot made the first photographic negative in 1835. Roger is an expert on Fox Talbot, the daguerreotype, and is well regarded as a photographic historian having published several books and articles on these topics early photography.

    This image was made as part of a Wet-Place collodion course I taught at Low Wood in the Lake District earlier in the year, made towards the end of what was a very enjoyable weekend.
