Calotype 5

Salted paper print of an unknown man by Robert Adamson (1821-1848) and D. O. Hill (1802-1870), mid 1840s.

The Hill and Adamson partnership was active from the middle of 1843 until the end of 1847. Adamson was the photographer and Hill, a painter, provided the 'artistic direction'. Their work was highly acclaimed and frequently compared to the paintings and etchings of Rembrandt.
