Around the world

Since our site attracts international interest, here are some of the photographers in the “Photographers Worldwide” section of the blog. While many of my non-British cartes de visite come from Europe, there are other from the Americas, including the Caribbean,  Africa, Middle and Far East and Australia and New Zealand. Why not drop in and see what you can discover. (Click to enlarge)

A collector of Victorian photographs for many a long year. I'm interested in both the individual photographs and the studio advertising on the 'backs' of the images, Victorian graphic design at its most varied and interesting. My collection of "cartes de visite" photographs is housed in plastic pockets within a series of albums, numerically arranged in order as they are acquired. There are now roughly 3000 photographers and images in all. I use directories, newspapers and genealogical information to research the life and work of each photographer and their studio but there aren't enough hours in the day. This photo is one of my collection, chosen for the gentle expression in the face of the sitter.
