Amateurs and Artists: Early Photography and Plymouth
  • Theatre 2, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

Nigel introduces us to a number of people from the early days of photography: Henry Fox Talbot and his photographs of Mount Edgcumbe and Plymouth, and pioneering photographers such as Linnaeus Tripe, Robert Hunt and Richard Beard, all of whom were from Devonport. 

The photographs they took, and evidence from the numerous Union Street photographic studios, provide a fascinating glimpse into the local and social history of the ‘Three Towns’, and the growing fashion for photography during the second half of the 19th century.
