Albert Adolphe BOUCHER
23 Ship Street & 15 Kings Road, Brighton
Another favourite photograph from my collection, which I am guessing shows a young bride in her wedding dress. Her expression seems to change the longer I look at the photograph. Sometimes she appears to be trying not to grin, then she looks rather serious, and sometimes sad.
Albert Boucher was also a talented artist; a self portraited painted around 1870 may be seen HERE together with a photograph of the Ship Street studio, c.1872.

Another photo from the Boucher studio. Another Brighton photographer, who will feature later on this blog, Thomas Donovan, was employed as a studio manager by Albert Boucher from 1873, and was kept on following Albert's death by his widow Elizabeth to help run the business.
*The Boucher studio was run by Albert's wife Elizabeth following his death in 1875, and continued at 15 Kings Road, Brighton, until 1875.
