This week for Ultra Vie I write about Tracy Chevalier, best known for the novel Girl with a Pearl Earring. Tonight in Soho, Chevalier is reading at Pin Drop Studio. Click here for more information on tonight’s event on Ultra Vie and for an exclusive Audio UK offer.
This week, I wrote about Fox Talbot, the Father of Photography, for Ultra Vie.
Photography is undoubtedly the most profound inventions of 19th century in Britain. It changed the way we recorded history and how we saw ourselves immortalised through a picture: a frozen moment in time.
I explore the first early pieces that will be on show in London and why Fox Talbot has solidly placed himself as the pioneer of the art form. Check it out on Ultra Vie.
