Turner, Benjamin Brecknell
British, 1815 - 1894
Related Content

Although he was hailed by critics in the 1850s as one of England's finest photographers, little is known about Turner's life. He was a member of the Photographic Exchange Club, and learned the process from William Henry Fox Talbot before setting up a studio above his family's business in London, where he photographed his family and friends. He is most well-known, however, for his photographs of architecture and landscape that were for the time remarkably large (averaging twelve by fifteen inches) and highly detailed with a broad tonal range.
