The project Vedos had a visit to London and became acquainted with a great exhibition “Hand-made photographs in the digital age – Six artists working with historical pigment print processes”. The exhibition can be seen at Clifford-Thames Gallery until the 15th of November. The online version of the exhibition can be viewed on the Alternative Photography website.

While in London we also enjoyed services of the Victoria and Albert Museum and went to see some chosen original prints. In the Prints and Drawings Study Room you may order works to be seen, and the staff will then retrieve the material for you. In our viewing list there were mainly historical works from artists like Anna Atkins, Hill and Adamson, J. M. Cameron, Benjamin Turner, P.H. Emerson, and Frederick Evans, among others.

Benjamin Turner‘s Cottage, Bredicot Common, Worcestershire, is being examined. It is an albumen print from a calotype negative, from 1852-1854.

Hedgerow Trees, Clerkenleap, Worcestershire by Benjamin Turner, 1852-1854.
