William Henry Fox Talbot Photography – Invention of Photography

The Talbot’s Processes explained in 6.36 min video created by George Eastman House.

Working in England, at the same time as Daguerre, William Henry Fox Talbot is best known for the invention of the negative/positive photographic process that became the standard way of making photographs in the 19th and 20th centuries.

His early processes of the photogenic drawing, salted paper print and calotype negative are demonstrated in this chapter.

George Eastman House, an independent nonprofit museum, is an educational institution that tells the story of photography and motion pictures—media that have changed and continue to change our perception of the world.
