This exhibition provides new insights into an overlooked form of photography, revealing rich and exciting seams of imagery and offering new perspectives on representation of coastal culture and leisure. Here we gain a glimpse of commercial photographic practice from approx.1850-1900, with a visual exposition of the British seaside as represented through the refracted lens of the beach photographer. The images shown are all unique tintypes and ambrotypes, making visible for the first time an online exhibition exploring the prototype holiday snap.
