Early Peruvian Photography: A Critical Case Study (Studies In Photography)
by Douglas Keith McElroy
Publisher's Description
Part of the University of Michigan Research Press Studies in Photography, this volume examines the development of photography in Peru. McElroy discusses the lives and work of early nineteenth-century Peruvian photographers, concentrating on the daguerreotype and carte-de-visite periods. These photographers are then compared with their European counterparts. Particularly interesting is the chapter on "The Business of Photography," a close look at the day-to-day operation of photography studios, and the cultural forces influencing commercial photographers in Peru.
