Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(1819/20–1863), English photographer who made most of his photographs in Spain after settling permanently in Madrid in 1852. He was official photographer to Queen Isabella II, but spent much of his time travelling and making calotype and collodion negatives of ancient architectural sites. His unusual treatment of architectural spaces has made him one of the most famous 19th-century photographers in Spain. He belonged to both the Sociéte Française de Photographie and the Architectural Photographic Association.
