Photographer unknown 'Trafalgar Square, London, 1907' London Photograph........... This view looking along the east side of Trafalgar Square towards the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields exemplifies the effects for which the pictorialists strove. It evokes an atmosphere – the emotional rather than documentary truth of a scene. The photographer is unknown, but an inscription on the mount suggests that the print may have been exhibited in 1907. Gelatin silver print
In the 1890s, a movement led largely by amateurs argued that photography should be an art form uncontaminated by industrialisation. The 'Pictorialists' preferred the "uniquely atmospheric evocation of mood and place" in the calotype, as shown by this print from 1907.
