Peter Henry Emerson

Emerson was a 19th century man of science who became interested in photography.  His work really emphasizes "pure:" photography with no retouching or any other manipulations.  He had a genius for light and texture.  here is a link for more about him:


  1. Robert these photos are wonderful ... love the ships ... the water is like glass in the bottom photo! Lorna:)

  2. Thank you, Lorna! He is a new find for me. If you haven't, read the link about him. A really interesting man, although he sounds a bit insufferably perfect ;~O
