The Future of the Past:

The William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonné

Professor Larry Schaaf will deliver the 2020 Colin Ford Lecture providing a fascinating insight to his work on The William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonné. Schaaf has been examining and compiling information on Talbot images worldwide for more than four decades. Beginning in 2014, with the backing of the William T Hillman Foundation, the Bodleian Libraries undertook converting these private databases into a public resource.  So far, images and data on more than 16,000 photographs have been made freely available on the website.  These allow individual researchers to pursue their own questions and draw their own conclusions.

BOOKING ESSENTIAL: ALL BOOKINGS TO BE MADE THROUGH THE BODLEIAN LIBRARY WEBSITE.
A LINK TO THE WEBSITE WILL BE PROVIDED WHEN BOOKINGS OPEN IN DECEMBER 2019.

This event includes a post lecture drinks reception kindly hosted by The Bodleian.
