Job, 1853-1930, was a stockbroker by profession and an early member of the Hove Camera Club elected a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 1895. He became a member of the Linked Ring in 1900 but also contributed to the RPS photographic salons in addition to the Ring’s salons. A world traveller: Job’s favorite scene was Sussex, in England. 1.

The Royal Photographic Society, which has a collection of Job’s photographs, describes him as the “Edward Elgar” of photography:  “Job’s best known photographs are of rural English landscapes, usually populated with his trademark, sheep.”
