Hans P. Kraus Jr. exhibits at The AIPAD Photography Show, New York, March 29-April 1, 2012, Booth 303

The birth and early development of photography will be surveyed at Hans P. Kraus Jr. at The AIPAD Photography Show New York from March 29 – April 1, 2012 at the Park Avenue Armory. Among the early masters represented will be William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron, Gustave Le Gray, Henri Courmont, and the circle of French sculptor Charles Simart. The images include salt prints from 1839 through the 1850s, and a daguerreotype from the 1850s.

A highlight of the exhibition will be one of the earliest photographs ever taken – a unique, lavender-colored photogenic drawing of a plant with small leaves by William Henry Fox Talbot, circa 1839. Talbot conceived the idea of photography during the 1830s, combining the use of the camera obscura with light-sensitive chemistry. His negative/positive process proved to be the forerunner of modern photography. The Martyrs’ Monument, Oxford, 1843, will also be on view. It is a rare variant of the image included in Talbot’s landmark book, The Pencil of Nature, the first photographically illustrated book published commercially.

A number of extraordinary portraits will be on exhibit at Hans P. Kraus Jr. including work by British photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. Among the 19th century’s greatest portraitists, Cameron began her career in photography at the age of 48 when she received a camera as a gift from her daughter. Cameron moved in the highest circles of Victorian society and counted artists, writers, and scientists among her close friends. Her albumen print portraits of the astronomer Sir John Herschel, 1867, and the American poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1868, will be on view, along with a portrait of the artist, a carbon print, circa 1879, by her son, Henry Herschel Hay Cameron.
