British Photography in the 19th Century: The Fine Art Tradition
by Mike Weaver
Publisher's Description
"This volume includes essays by an international team of historians of photography who examine the artistic pre-eminence of British photography in the nineteenth century. The essays focus on the work of seventeen fine art photographs from a cultural and critical perspective. Topics covered include the aesthetic qualities of photographers such as Fox Talbot and Roger Fenton, who in the past have been discussed solely in terms of their technological developments; the relation between art and science in P. H. Emerson's naturalist works; the qualities and limitations of the photomechanical print; and the pictorialist tradition."--the publisher.
