Item description for Great Photographic Journeys: in the footsteps of 19th century British photographers (Dewi Lewis Publishing) by John Hannavy...
In this book, John Hannavy re-creates the epic journeys first traveled by nineteenth-century photographers: Fox Talbot in Scotland (1844), Charles Kinnear and Melville Raven in France (1857), Francis Frith in Egypt (18561859), Roger Fenton in Russia and the Ukraine (18521855), Samuel Bourne in India (1863), and John Thomson in China and Cyprus (18631878).
Contrasting the Victorian world with our own, Hannavy looks at how our view of the world has changed in the intervening years and chronicles developments in travel, architecture, culture, and photography itself.
Professor John Hannavy is an established writer on photography and photographic history. He edited the recently published Encyclopaedia of 19th Century Photography.
