  1. I do know Talbot helped in the development of making photography considered an artistic media like, painting and drawing. I enjoy this simplistic artwork created by Talbot. After reading more, I discovered that this is a “camera-less photo.” He would take photo paper, and place an object on it and expose it to light, creating these images. Again, I really enjoy this “camera-less photo.”

  2. I agree with the comment on simplicity. It causes the viewer to appreciate the complexity of the natural form in the leaves.
