Oscar G. Rejlander: Artist Photographer

A fascinating survey of the varied career of an inventive and influential 19th-century photographer, from allegorical montage to Darwin’s catalogue of emotions

Oscar G. Rejlander (1813–1875) was a Swedish-born photographer who pioneered the genre of art photography. He is best known for combining negatives to form elaborate allegorical compositions and for his ability to communicate expression through his photographic studies and portraits. His influence shines in the works of other important photographers of the day. This catalogue accompanies the first major retrospective on this vital yet understudied figure and considers the whole range of his activities, including his work as a painter and printmaker.
