Paris: the crisis…. and museum strikes [21 Dec 2009]

Primitive photography – Revisiting old negatives [12 May 2008]

The market for 19th century photography rallies on each new sale of a private collection offering the opportunity to bid for major negatives which have been carefully preserved for the past 100 or 150 years. Other than how well these delicate prints have been preserved, the wide range in prices depends on the subject’s interest and the beauty of the negative. Daguerreotypes, negatives in all genres and old prints tell us as much about the 19th century as they do about the history of the photographic medium.
