Jo Gane’s Daguerreotypes

Project Dag, Jo Gane’s efforts to research and recreate this unique early photography technique, took a major step last week when Jo produced her first proper daguerreotypes at Lacock Abbey. Here’s three of them!

As Jo says, “These scans of the dags really don’t do the images justice – to appreciate them properly and see their resolution and three dimensional qualities you really need to handle the images.” If you happen to be at BOM when Jo’s in, do ask her to have a look. They’re quite magical!
