Victorian Giants: How Victorian Photographers Invented Art Photography

In 1839 a new means of visual representation was announced to a startled world: photography. Although the medium was immediately and enthusiastically embraced by the public at large, photographers themselves spent the ensuing decades experimenting with techniques and debating the nature of this new invention. In this presentation, we will look at four Victorian photographers who addressed these questions using the new medium of photography. An empty-nester, a college professor and children’s book author, a British immigrant from Sweden and an upper class Viscountess changed thinking about photography and its expressive power. Our presentation will explore how these four photographers changed photography from the science to art.
