TalbotIn this presentation Hans P. Kraus Jr., who has been in the business since 1980, will focus on collecting and valuing 19th century British photographs on paper. William Henry Fox Talbot’s 1839 announcement of his discovery was made in immediate response to the discovery of the daguerreotype in France. Talbot made paper negatives and salt prints leading to the first photographically illustrated books and finally to his invention of the photogravure. The new medium spread quickly and collecting started shortly thereafter. Hans Kraus will discuss today’s market for photographs, which began in the 1970s.

This is a recording of a webinar previously held live on April 4, 2023.
