Early Seaside Photography

Early Seaside Photography

SEAS Photography holds a large collection of very early beach photography. These ambro’ and slightly later ferrotypes are currently informing research which seeks to reappraise early shoreline photographic practitioners. Such demotic imagery has too often been dismissed as inartistic and disposable wears – photographers providing cheap seaside ephemera offering a while-you-wait likeness in an almost instantaneous image. This early photographic practice is now being reframed by SEAS’ researchers and the simplistic bifurcation of studio photographer as legitimate and itinerant seaside photographer as rogue challenged.
