19th century architectural photography

| | Comments (0)

I've always had a soft spot for early nineteenth century photography, a fascination with the technology  and an interest in the way they approached their picture making.

This  picture is by Carlo Ponti, a photographic chroniclers of Venice's  tourist sights.  It is of the Palazzo Contarini della Scala or Dai Bovolo circa 1850's,  and it is from the National Galleries of Scotland's  newly formed  Flickr stream

The architecture is a mixture of early Venetian Renaissance and Gothic-Byzantine building techniques, with its main feature the arches and railing that follow the winding staircase to the top of the building.
