Footnotes

  • THE FIRST AND RAREST OF EMERSON'S PHOTOGRAPHIC BOOKS, described on publication by Amateur Photographer as "an epoch-making book combining "perfection of photography... perfection of reproductive processes, and... perfection of artistic feeling". The platinum prints in Life and Landscape achieved a subtle and beautiful tone, but they were labour-intensive and costly, and in his subsequent works Emerson used the photo-mechanical processes of photogravure and half-tone printing. Emerson was the first English photographer to work out a theory of naturalistic photography, his attitude and philosophy having "a profound effect on the growth of good photography - he was a mainstream man when his colleagues were stagnating in backwaters" (Bill Jay, Album, 1970).

    Provenance: Hugh Hamshaw-Thomas (1885-1962, paleobotanist, and curator of the Botany School Museum, Cambridge), gifted by a friend whilst at Downing College, Cambridge; by descent to the present owner.
