A&F Short but Sweet: Episode 01 Anna Atkins

Today we are debuting our newest podcasting venture, Arts and Facts: Short but Sweet. Short but Sweet are five minute or shorter podcasts on more specific topics than we can tackle in a full length podcast. We think these topics are really interesting, and may give our listeners more insight into people, places, techniques, vocabulary, etc. etc. that wouldn't normally be able to be covered in depth in the podcast.

We hope you enjoy our first episode today, and please leave us a comment with any topic suggestions! We love to hear from our listeners.

Chloe Harris talks about Anna Atkins, a botanist who is considered the first female photographer, and the first photographer to publish a book of photography.

Below are some images from her book.
