Comments made on Photography ...
By the 1840s, photographers began to look to the city for inspiration. Cliffs and valleys were replaced by buildings and streets in vivid depictions of the urban environment. William Henry Fox Talbot is widely recognised as the inventor of modern photography. During the 1840s, Talbot photographed many scenes in London. A monument to Admiral Lord Nelson was first suggested in 1805, the year of his death, but it was not completed until 1843. Talbot's photograph, taken from an upstairs window in Cockspur Street, shows Nelson's Column still surrounded by scaffolding.
