Dear list members,
This weekend is one of the years high day's for historical photography.
Not only because of the gathering of hundreds of photo enthusiasts at the Photo Fair in Bievres, but especially because I'm very pleased to announce three recent overwhelming publications on historical processes.
  • 'Le Vocabulaire Technique de la Photography', Known as the 'VTP'
  • 'l' Autochrome Lumière: Secrets d' ateliers et défis industriels'
  • '(re)Connaitre et Conserver les Photographies Anciennes'
  • The latter will soon be followed by an English translation. 'Photographs of the Past, Process and Preservation'.
In addition I would like to communicate, if not already well know, the launch of the Daguerreobase, an online daguerreotype databank.
Further, the recent publication of:
  • 'Sequences, Contemporary Chronophotography and Experimental Digital Art'
  • 'Uncanny Bodies, The Coming of Sound Film and the Origins of the Horror Genre'.
For those more interested in optical curiosities, pre-film and conjuring related themes, four more books will be of huge interest:
  • 'The Claude Glass, Use and Meaning of the Black Mirror in Western Art'
  • 'Une Image Peut En Cacher Une Autre'
  • 'Zauberkünste in Linz und der Welt'.
  • The Education of the Eye
Detailed information on all these novelty's can be found on the publication page of Early Visual Media.
See you in Bievres?
Best wishes,
