Studio Delton- Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

Added on by sanam gharagozlou.

A studio that specialized in equestrian photography from 1864 until 1914. If you were a rider during those years you went to get your photo taken with your horse all decked out in your frills and top hat. The exhibition tells us that the horse as an animal was at its peak during Napoleon III's time. Noble but also very useful in the streets of Paris.

It was great to see the high quality of the glass collodion plates. The Delton studio made their business from their commercial portraits but they also contributed in photography's technology. They were able to capture the first horse race.
