Lecture: Leif Wigh. A look at the past. About older photographic technology and its users, 1839-1980

In his lecture Leif Wigh talked about the technological and stylistic developments of photographic history’s different periods using examples from the exhibition. During the second half of the 19th century Julia Margaret Cameron developed a very personal artistic approach using the technology of her time. At first glance one could think that the Czech artist Miroslav Tichy was inspired by her approach.
