Publisher's Description:
Harold’s Pencil of Nature. The Pencil of Nature by William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877) appeared in six installments between 1844 and 1846, a publication that is generally regarded as the first book to be illustrated with original photographic prints and intended for a broad readership. The title and the photographic process developed by Talbot have the requisite relevance to the work of Harold Strak, who was born 159 years later. This might seem far-fetched, but in Harold Strak’s work the present and the past are closely linked. (text by Flip Bool)
