Henry Peach Robinson. Robinson was the godfather of Pictorialism and extremely influential in nineteenth century photography circles, shaping public opinion, both through the photographs he exhibited and the books he wrote. He learned combination printing from Rejlander but easily surpassed the teacher, producing definitive photographs printed from up to nine negatives. Led a secession group of photographers away from The Royal Photographic Society and was a founder member of the Linked Ring Brotherhood in 1892.
