William Notman Life & Work by Sarah Parsons

Notman’s studio produced photographs in almost every genre, from portraiture to composite images to landscapes and industrial photographs. Selecting key works from an archive of thousands is complicated by the fact that there is so little information about which photographs Notman actually took. Although no definitive proof exists that Notman himself made these images, they all date from periods when he was actively involved in the business. These selections illustrate the breadth and creativity of the studio business that Notman created.
