The plates of the present
Organized by Thomas Fougeirol and Jo-ey Tang
“The plates of the present work are impressed by the agency of Light alone, without any aid whatever from the artist's pencil. They are the sun-pictures themselves, and not, as some persons have imagined, engravings in imitation.” - William Henry Fox Talbot, The Pencil of Nature, the first photographically illustrated book, published in six installments between 1844 and 1846.
As part of "The plates of the present" launch, G.William
Webb re-enacted N.Dash's Bean Agency.
