Political Photography



Editorial, Drollery


Photography, Invention, Politics, Government

    Argues that photography should be used to give 'something like permanency to political appearances', which tend to change so frequently. Notes that the 'portraits are often not very flattering to the subjects, for the shadows are strongly marked', and that a photograph of the Prime Minister Robert Peel would reveal the change in his political 'character'.
