    This essay argues that William Henry Fox Talbot’s invention of the negative-positive photographic process was facilitated by the fact that he conceived of his historical moment as one in which the ideals of Romanticism, while still attractive, were becoming increasingly untenable.   Lacock Abbey is an ideal place for this museum as it is the home of William Fox Talbot, arguably inventor of modern film photography and also the location of the first 'photograph'. The museum is situated in the entrance complex for the whole Abbey. As such I believe you can only go in by paying the full entry price for the whole Abbey TripAdvisor reviews.
