Louis Boutan and Underwater Photography - Request for help 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
On the Internet I have come across illustrations of the pioneeering underwater photography of Louis Boutan (1859-1934) at the Arago Marine Laboratory at Banyuls-sur-Mer between 1892-1900. The websites provide examples but no source information or proper credits.
 
I'd be grateful for any specialists in the history of Underwater Photography who can assist. Perhaps we could collaborate on an online exhibition. alan@luminous-lint.com

Dec 12, 2011 Victoria & Albert Museum biographies on photographers added to Luminous-Lint 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
As a part of trying to improve the sharing of information within the photo-history community I‘m delighted that the Victoria & Albert Museum in the UK has allowed the use of their biographies on photographers and these have been loaded in. It is hoped that other sets of biographies from leading organisations will be added in over the coming months. Sharing high quality materials will assist us all.
 
If you want to see how these look - try Linneas Tripe as an example

Dec 2, 2011 Portrait: Profiles 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
I've been considering why the profile is not as common in the history of photography as one might expect. While I'm pondering this (ideas most welcome) here is a selection of profiles to examine. I've started this exhibition with a 1/6th plate Daguerreotype of a marble bust of Samuel George Morton, and followed it with a Physionotrace and a silhouette to put the series in context.
