French Daguerreotypes
by Janet E. Buerger
Publisher's Description
The daguerreotypes collected here not only document the birth of photography and its historic legacy, but also provide an insight into French culture. This is the first complete catalog of the French daguerreotype collection at the George Eastman House. Author Janet Buerger, curator of the Eastman House Photographic Collections, uses the collection to produce a cultural history, arguing that the daguerreotype played a larger role in French art than has been previously acknowledged. French Daguerreotypes offers a wealth of visual information for lovers of daguerreotypes and photography, as well as insights that will be invaluable for historians in many fields.
