PHOTO AND HISTORY TALK from Carolyn Bloore

2nd April 2019 Members £4.50 / Non-members £6 (includes complimentary drink)

Taking the advertisement for ‘The Photographic Rooms (established 1852) at No.2 Midland Road, Derby’ as a starting point, Dr Carolyn Bloore will explore the way in which photographic records made for the Great Exhibition of 1851 may have influenced the development of Winters. Making reference to Hugh Owen, Philip Delamotte and Francis Bedford, she will consider how the emergence of practitioners from different backgrounds, such as Emmanuel Nicholas Charles (c.1828-1863) and Walter William Winter (1842-1924), could become successful photographic artists and photographers. Drawing on her past research for A Vision Exchanged, (London:V&A, 1985), Amateurs, Photography and the Mid-Victorian Imagination, (University of Chicago Press, 1986), and Photography and Printmaking 1840-1860, (University of Reading, 1990) she seeks to put in context the early commercial success and longevity of Winter’s Derby studio.
