Über diesen Titel
In august 1839, a major historical event, Daguerre's invention of photography, was announced in Paris. These first photographs, Daguerreotypes, were made with complicated process. The image was photographed onto a silver-coated piece of copper and therefore every daguerreotype was, and is today, unique. Stephan Richter's collection of daguerrotypes consists of hundreds of images of superb quality. This book shows that in the first 20 years of this process, photographs of outstanding quality were made, many of them carefully hand tinted by specialists.From Library Journal:
Forming the nucleus of this book are 65 daguerreotypes from Richter's own collection that beautifully illustrate the richness and diversity of the first practical photographic process. Reproduced in color to reveal their masterful hand-tinting are exquisite and rare examples of the art: daguerreotypes of nudes (20 of the 65!), Niagara Falls, Cairo, the Crystal Palace, a shipyard with a vessel under construction, and individual and group portraits. Helmut Gernsheim's introduction and Richter's commentary offer little new information but will be appreciated by an audience unfamiliar with the process that inspired modern photography, which celebrates its official 150th anniversary this year. For twice the sum, a rounder, scholarly work (reproducing 100 daguerreotypes, 34 in color) is the recently released The Daguerreotype: A Sesquicentennial Celebration (Univ. of Iowa, 1989). Both are recommended.
