When it comes to photography, we live in an age of instant gratification and saturation, thanks to smartphone apps such as Snapchat and Instagram – and it’s easy to forget how the art form of photography first started, and the generations of innovation and advancement it has since undergone.
This revealing – and aesthetically pleasing – new three-part documentary, led by photographer Eamonn McCabe, explores its history: looking at its origins, its pioneers, and the changing way in which we take and appreciate photos.
Eamonn McCabe explores the development of the art of photography in the UK, beginning by looking at how science and technology allowed pioneering photographers like Roger Fenton and Julia Margaret Cameron to create a new art form in the 1800s.
