A new article has been published in issue 214 of On Landscape on Peter Henry Emerson and his book Naturalistic Photography that was published in 1889. Emerson was well-known for his books and images of the Norfolk and Suffolk landscape, and had some very strong views on photography as Art, including how depth of field should reflect the science of how the eye sees. The book is a good source of quotations about photography at the time. Only a little later in 1891, he then published a pamphlet, printed with black borders, on the Death of Naturalistic Photography and soon after stopped exhibiting or publishing his images.
