I'm looking for information on the British photographer John Tompson. I've been asked to put together an essay for my Historical and Contextual unit. Where we've got to compare a post 1900's image with a pre 1900's image. I've chosen Meyerowitz's 'fallen man' for my post 1900's image but am finding it difficult to find an image to compare it with. Supposeldy thompsons street images were staged or certainately the subjects were aware of his large tripod mounted view camera. I imagine the exposures needed for his woodbury type images would be too long to accomodate snap shots and so his subjects would be asked to hold a pose. Which is obviously totally different to Meyerowitz's decisive-moment stuff and the basis of my essay. If anybody knows of any pre 1900's image, not necessarily Tompson, that could have comparisons drawn with 'fallen man' then that'd be great. Any ideas would be appreciated. Cheers!
