Published to coincide with a major retrospective exhibition of the work of Henry Peach Robinson, this book brings together the work of one of the major Victorian photographers. In his own lifetime, Henry Peach Robinson dominated the emergent field of photography, and helped establish it as an art-form in its own right. Since his death, his work has been relatively neglected and sometimes derided for its artificiality and sentimentality. In this reappraisal, the author sets out to show him as one of the most significant figures in the genre. Some 90 illustrations are reproduced and other examples of his work are used to illustrate an account of his life and work.

His influential writings spread his views far beyond his Tunbridge Wells studio. Although the text is somewhat colorless, the meticulously documented chronology, bibliography, and exhibition history, as well as the superb plates, make this essential for any specialized photographic collection.
