"This book brings together for the first time high-quality reproductions representing the full sweep of Talbot's work. These beautiful images are not only records of scientific triumphs but also the evidence of the first steps in shaping a totally new type of vision. Talbot became the first artist to be trained by the very art that he had invented."

Records of the dawn of photography : Talbot's notebooks P & Q by Larry J Schaaf ( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first publication of the two most important notebooks created by William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-77), the inventor of negative/positive photography. Henry Talbot preserved the eighteenth century tradition of the gentleman amateur scientist in the face of increasing professionalization of science and technology in the nineteenth century. He had great powers of imagination and often conceived of things well beyond his present ability to execute. Notebooks P and Q span the period from the first public announcement of photography in 1839 through the 1843 plateau of Talbot's researches. They record both his false starts and his triumphs. While the emphasis is on the new art of photography, there is substantial reference to chemistry, electricity, light, optics and railroad motive power. The notebook pages are reproduced in full, preserving the tempo and organization of Talbot's thoughts, and keeping his sketches in context. A full expanded transcription decodes Talbot's sometimes difficult hand and abbreviations. Extensive notes and scholarly apparatus interpret and establish the context of Talbot's work."--BOOK JACKET
Hikari no jinen = Nature of light by Hiroshi Sugimoto ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A collection of photographs that pay homage to the work of photography pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot. Titled "Photogenic Drawing", these photographs were printed from paper negatives produced by Talbot 170 years ago. Sugimoto has effectively played variations on the original scores provided by Talbot's negatives, transferring to a different medium images that would otherwise disappear and be lost to obscurity. "Lightening Fields "are prints in which the light is burned in directly by applying electrical current to the film. The inspiration for this technique comes from "aborted discharge" experiments by Talbot. To create "Lightning Fields", Sugimoto ran electric current directly over the film and printed the results. This series is also related to Talbot since it recalls the experiments that he carried out - and eventually discontinued - with electrical discharge in his work as a scientist
