Charles Job (Brighton). Job (1853-1930) was a stockbroker by profession and an early member of the Hove Camera Club and who was elected a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1895. He became a member of the Linked Ring in 1900 but also contributed to the RPS photographic salons in addition to the Ring's salons. A world traveller: Job's favorite scene was Sussex, in England. (Margaret Harker, 1979 The Linked Ring. The Secession in Photography , 1892-1910 p.154). The Royal Photographic Society, which has a collection of Job's photographs, describes him as the "Edward Elgar" of photography: "Job's best known photographs are of rural English landscapes, usually populated with his trademark, sheep."
