Vintage photography defined
The term ’vintage photography’ defines the kind of photography that was captured during the 19th and early 20th centuries. In order for a photograph from this era to be considered vintage, the negative needs to have been developed within five years of the photo being taken. Scandinavia, specifically Sweden, was during this time at the frontier of vintage photography. Famous Swedish photographers were, to name a few, Oscar Rejlander, Johannes Jaeger and Henry B. Goodwin.
