William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877), founder of modern photography and a major intellectual figure of his time, was interested in fields as diverse as botany, physics, mathematics, archeology and even literature. A real dive into the origins of photography, this book invites the reader on a visual journey through time, to the era of the invention of photography. He speaks of Talbot's experiences, setbacks and successes as he perfected his technique under the awe of his friends and colleagues. Talbot, who never ceased to improve his photographic process during his life, also distinguished himself by the variety of his shots: photographs of the family home of Lacock Abbey, portraits of relatives or friends, natures dead bodies of plant specimens, fragments of lace, etc. Covering the entire career of Talbot, the images collected here also reveal the care and wonder of their creator and resuscitate the beauty and mystery of these photographs.
