Excerpt from Photographic Mosaics, 1883: An Annual Record of Photographic Progress
Another effort made in a quiet way should not be overlooked. We refer to the exhibition of the Photographic Society of Phila delphia, held in this city on March 7th, 1882, when to a large audie... nce examples of photographic art were projected upon a screen by means of an optical lantern. That display elicited a great deal of applause and excited much interest in the art culture of photography.
Mr. Robinson's beautiful studies which appeared in a recent number of the Philadelphia Photographer, are bound to excite work in a higher direction than has been attempted by landscape photographers heretofore. The introduction of the emulsion plate, with the ability to expose quickly, now enables the photo grapher to introduce properly posed figures into his landscapes with a great deal of effect. In this direction the aspirant to greater art researches should work with all diligence and talent.
