Inhaltsangabe: An exploration of the relationship between photography and American culture during the 19th century. Six essays by scholars, illustrated by almost 250 photographic images - examine the varied ways in which photographs reflected and influenced 19th-century American life.
From Library Journal:
This substantial contribution to the history of photography accompanies a traveling exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. Images borrowed from 52 institutions and a number of private collections are well reproduced here and arranged in roughly chronological order. The introduction and six essays are well documented and cover both new and familiar topics from the fresh perspective of 19th-century American cultural history: Alan Trachtenberg on the impact of the daguerreotype; Barbara McCandless on studio portraiture and the celebrity photograph; editor Sandweiss on the photographic documentation of the American West; Keith Davis on photography's military and technical applications during the American Civil War; Peter Bacon Hale on the documentation of cities and landscapes; and Sarah Greenough on the late 19th century emergence of amateur and artistic photography. Highly recommended.
