Henry Peach Robinson (1830-1901), Photographer

Artist of 9 portraits
An early advocate of Pictorialist photography and a founder of the “Linked Ring“, Robinson produced photographic work that evolved from fine, standard portraits to composite prints, for which he is best known, to picturesque landscapes. Born in Shropshire, Robinson studied drawing and painting while employed in a bookshop in Leamington Spa. He opened a photographic portrait studio in Leamington in 1857, and soon had a successful business producing portraits. Robinson's pictures were widely exhibited and he won awards for his work. His most influential books were Pictorial Effect in Photography (1869) and Picture-Making by Photography (1884). His work is held in major private and public collections.
