William Henry Fox Talbot: Beyond Photography - Exhibition at Trinity College
William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877) is now primarily remembered as a pioneer of photography. Talbot's work, however, extended across the natural sciences, mathematics, classical scholarship and Assyriology. His wide-ranging interests are documented in his vast correspondence with leading Victorian scientists and his non-photographic notebooks, some of which are on display in the Wren Library until 9 July.
The Wren Library is open to visitors from 12.00 until 2.00, Monday to Friday.
