Henry Peach Robinson was the oldest of four children and was educated at Horatio Russell's academy. By 1856 was a founding member of Birmingham Photographic Society. 1864 forced to give up his studio due to ill-health from exposure to toxic photographic chemicals. He then relocates to London to open up another studio then becomes the vice president of the Royal Photographic Society. After then he was persuaded to serve as president in 1896. I chose this photographer because I like how he used most of his photos in the negative and took photo's and made it into one.
