Kelley Wilder has been researching photography and photographic history since her undergraduate days at Kenyon College (where chemistry professor Hamilton Smith developed his method of tintyping in 1856). She has worked and studied at the Paul Strand Archive, the George Eastman House, the Maine Photographic Workshops, Photo-eye Books & Prints, Glasgow University, Oxford University, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, and finally De Montfort University. She has a Certificate in Photographic Archives and Preservation from the George Eastman House, and a Post-Graduate Certification in Higher Education. In 2003 she finished her doctoral dissertation at Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Martin Kemp on Language and the Invention of Photography and has since been working on science and photography, in 2009 publishing an introductory book on the subject, Photography and Science with Reaktion Books. Kelley has an abiding interest in all things photographic, both artistic and scientific, in Germany, France the UK and America. She is engaged in bringing photographic research resources to the web, and has worked on three of the digital projects hosted by DMU. Soon on this page you will be able to download a current publication list. Here is the link to the Talbot Correspondence.

Kelley Wilder can be found in Portland Building 1.24, or you can email her at
