[Curatorial description - National Media Museum - December 2011]
 
The image was made using the photoglyphic engraving process, invented by Talbot. A chemical mixture was applied to a metal plate, then exposed under an object or a photographic positive. The coating hardened where the light reached it, the plate could then be etched and used for printing.
