Photographers in the rest of the world producing stickybacks and other smaller sizes of portraits

We believe that Stickyback photographs originated in the UK, and particularly on the Isle of Man. The story of the emergence of the format is explained in detail in our page on Spiridione Grossi. But the format could also be found in a number of other countries in the early years of the 20th Century.

We would be delighted to hear from photo historians outside the UK who have information on the spread of the genre. Below are links to a number of country pages where we have some relevant information or have found local survivals.

Many thanks to photo historians János Mátyás Balogh and Róman Kienjet for their excellent contributions to these pages.
