Famous and successful during the 1850's and early 1860's, the photographer Robert Macpherson had slipped into relative obscurity by the time of his death in 1872. By the twentieth century, historians could find only the barest outline of his professional career in the photographic literature. My study of a wider range of nineteenth-century material has uncovered his biography and, with it, evidence of his full participation in the Victorian artistic community.
