From Library Journal:

Seidner was 42 when he died in 1999, leaving a photographic legacy that was broad and complex. The works in this book are portraits of the rich, the successful, and the unknown dressed in 19th-century costume. Using a very formal, nearly shadowless light granting an icy tone to each image makes for remarkable work glorifying the steady gaze shared by camera and subject. Each portrait can appear as a nearly perfect representational painting of what it is: a carefully composed and posed photograph that places current people in another time. The rich texture of clothing fabrics, the carefully prepared confidence in these men and women, and a gifted photographer have come together to construct a book that is unusual--spare but elegant and a final showcase for an artist with very special talents. A brief text by Richard Martin, curator of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, provides an appreciation for these complex mergings of aesthetics and people--who, through Seidner's eye, become timeless. Recommended for all photography collections.
