Vered Maimon

University of Minnesota Press


269 pages



Vered Maimon presents readers with an examination of early nineteenth century photography in general and the work of English photographer William Henry Fox Talbot in specific. Over four chapters devoted to British science and the conception of photography and the first applications of photography for documenting botanical specimens and historical documents, the author argues for a re-examination of early photography from the perspective of the philosophical and aesthetic considerations of Talbot and other early photographers. The author is a faculty member of Tel Aviv University, Israel. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
