Event contents

[first out of the U.K.] One of the photograph inventors,
We display camera which Talbot used

William Henry Fox Talbot of British who was one of the photograph inventors invented photograph manufacture technique "calotype" which got positive image from negative image in the 1830s. This "negative positive method" is used as method to get image in silversalt photograph even now. Subsequent "wet plate" and "dry plate" ※This was invented by British hand, too, and the U.K. played a big role in development, the spread from beginning of photograph.

In addition, camera which had excellent spirits and rational functionality to remind of high quality furniture of U.K. tradition using beautiful wood (including mahogany) and brass (brass = brass) so that maker which dealt with production of camera and lens in the U.K. from mid-19th century to the early 20th century in this time existed a lot and was called "mahogany & brass" was made.

In addition, by this temporary exhibition, we constitute individual collection of Yasuhito Kobayashi who is collector of camera made in the U.K. other than Japanese camera Museum store document and introduce British role that pulled photograph world and, mainly on British camera made for wet plate, the dry plate period, display many product made in U.K. cameras to postwar spread type camera.

Camera which alone Talbot of photograph inventor whom British royal photograph association, British Kunitachi media Museum also possessed for this display used for experiment for the first time of the U.K. go out and will be displayed.

Machine parts that Talbot succeeded in shooting of scenery of Ray cook monastery in 1835 leave the U.K. after time of 180 years, and it is thinking that it is to thing which has big significance in cultural interchange let alone photograph industry of both Japan and Britain to be displayed in Japan which is the center of world camera industry.

Wet plate: We apply medicine with photosensitivity to glasswork becoming base just before shooting and perform shooting and the developing while we get wet. Archer (British) is invented in 1851.
Dry plate: It is glasswork base as well as wet plate, but preservation, shooting are possible in dry state. Sensitivity is finished, and mass production is enabled, too. Maddox (British) is invented in 1871.
