Hugh Owen (English, 1808 - 1897)
Hugh Owen was one of the first generation of amateur photographers turned professional, working in the 1840s and 1850s, in Bristol and London. He is best known for his calotypes of the Great Exhibition in London in 1851. He exhibited work at the Society of Arts in 1852 and a review in The Times listed him among the best photographers of the day. He was one of the early members of the Calotype Society founded in London in 1847 and might have exchanged work with the Scotsman, John Muir Wood.
