Comparable to a plant study in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877) was a British inventor who pioneered the development of photography. In January 1839, Talbot presented his discoveries of \'photogenic drawing\' to the Royal Institution. He then produced the first calotype in 1841: the first negative-positive process making possible multiple…
