This exhibition catalogue documents early photography, particularly the daguerreotype work of the Boston firm, Southworth & Hawes. A thorough introduction provides a brief history of photography, introduces the collection, and highlights the many innovations of these pioneering American artists. Accompanying a 1939 exhibition of daguerreotypes and photographs at The Metropolitan Museum of Art that commemorated the centenary of photography, this text highlights the historic and artistic importance of these early forays into a new medium.
