Victorian Photograms.


Photograms by Anna Atkins. Text by Larry J. Schaaf.
Aperture, Millerton, NY, USA, 1985. 104 pp., color illustrations, 9x12".

An important work both historically and aesthetically. Anna Atkins, an aristocratic Victorian amateur botanist, was encouraged by the inventor of the positive-negative photographic process, William Henry Fox Talbot, to pursue her study of photography. Her resultant proficiency in the cyanotype process and her love of plants produced a unique and sensitive body of botanical impressions. Larry Schaaf puts the work in an historical context and gives us details of photography's first woman practitioner.
