Overview

“Henry Peach Robinson was perhaps the most influential voice in nineteenth century photography. No other photographer so consistently produced major works of art, was bestowed with so many commendations and medals and was so much a proselytizer of a coherent theory of photographic art … Even more important than his pictures, however, Robinson’s writings stand as the first complete photographic art theory in the English language.” —Robert A. Sobieszek (from his introduction to Robinson’s Pictorial Effect in Photography)

Photographer Henry Peach Robinson is often first remembered for his zealous, and highly adept, use of combination printing—creating a single image from multiple negatives. He was also an accomplished writer and this short book from 1888 remains one of his most endearing. In practical instruction and personal anecdote, it extols his unyielding belief that capturing the natural beauty of the landscape required the helping hand of a few props, some costumed models, and a spare negative or two.
