Summary: This book brings together all the surviving photographs--126 of the original 150--from the remarkable series entitled "La Nouvelle Orleans et ses environs, taken of New Orleans in 1867 by the city's most important photographer, Theodore Lilienthal. Representing the first municipally sponsored photographic survey of any american city, and only recently rediscovered, the photographs--of every aspect of the city, from urban palaces and stately mansions to factories and asylums--were exhibited at the Paris World Exposition in 1867, before being formally presented to Napoleon III, Emperor of France from 1852 to 1871. This book places the photographs in the context of contemporary photographic practice, nineteenth-century city building and urban iconography, and of the need for reconstruction and economic renewal in the South following the devastation of the American Civil War. lavishly produced and engagingly written, it will appeal to anyone interested in the history of the United States, the history of photography and the development of the modern city.

Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: This book publishes for the first time one of the supreme accomplishments of nineteenth century urban photography, a series of large-plate views of Reconstruction New Orleans entitled  La Nouvelle Orléans et ses environs, taken in 1867 by the German-born photographer Theodore Lilienthal (1829-–1894). Comprising the first official photographic survey of any American city, the images –feature every aspect of the city, from Garden District mansions, churches and synagogues to mills, refineries and breweries. The photographs were exhibited at the Paris World Exposition of 1867 before being presented to Napoléon III, emperor of France (1852–-70). The author examines Lilienthal'’s photographic method and contextualizes his work in the history of New Orleans and Civil War photography. Short essays on each of the 126 photographs investigate the subject matter of the images in depth, often illuminating the architectural, urban, social, economic, or political history of the Civil War-era city. Longer essays explore panoramic and stereographic photography, and extensive biographical and bibliographical information is also provided. This detailed and evocative pictorial and historical survey of Civil War-era New Orleans will appeal to anyone interested in American history, the history of photography or the development of the modern city.
