All her life Florence Nightingale shunned having her photograph taken. There are only a few photographic portraits of her in existence.

In a talk at Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village in Compton on Monday, November 7, at 2pm, photo historian Denis Pellerin explores how many photographs of Florence Nightingale there are and what is known about them, the circumstances in which they were made and distributed and the photographers who took them.

Denis Pellerin is a photo-historian with a passion for stereo photography. He has been researching the history of stereoscopy for over 40 years, writing a dozen books and more than 60 articles both in French and in English.

Since 2012 Denis has been the curator of rock band Queen’s guitarist Brian May’s extensive collection of stereo photographs.

Brian and Denis have co-authored four books together with more to come. Denis has been the director of the London Stereoscopic Company since 2013 and he has given nearly100 online or face-to-face 3D talks on different aspects of Victorian stereo photography.

Tickets for his talk at Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village are £5, and £4.50 for fiends of the gallery.
