William Henry Fox Talbot was an accomplished scholar in mathematics and science, but is best remembered as a pioneer photographer and the inventor of photographic processes. During his honeymoon, Talbot became frustrated with the camera lucida and the camera obscura as tools for documentation, and decided to find a more accurate and automatic way of recording images found in nature. Talbot would become one of the first creators of photosensitive paper and printed photographs, the most famous of which were called calotypes. Because he experimented widely with processes with varying success, the calotype prints are among the few that were chemically stable and able to bear permanent images. Talbot’s primary rival was Louis Daguerre, who created a comparable photographic process known as the Daguerrotype.
