Dawn and Sunset
Photographer: Robinson, Henry Peach
Medium: Photographic print
"Mr. Robinson's pictures never fail to find favour with the jurors at photographic exhibitions, and he now stands the most be-medalled photographer in the world. He was not the first to introduce the special line of photography with which his name is now so intimately connected - 'Composite' photography, - but he was quick to perceive its possibilities...Many of Mr Robinsons most important works...were...produced not from one single negative, but...from two or more negatives printed on one sheet of paper...
In justice to the firm which has produced the photogravures, Messrs. Annan and Swan, it should be explained that the prints are done, not from Mr. Robinson's negatives, a feat practically impossible, as will easily be understood from the description given of the method by which the purely photographic prints are produced, but from negatives taken from the combination prints produced in Mr. Robinson's own atelier."
