MEDIA REVIEWS

"Banta's study saves daguerreotypy from being tossed of as an archival curio by keeping her project relatively simple and steering clear of convoluted aesthetics. She refrains from alienating the reader by refusing to participate in the shop-talk that all too often accompanies artistic discussions."--Nicole Duclos, "Rain Taxi"


"Banta is highly effective in relating the daguerreotype process to the interests and social positions of those in the pictures, including Oliver Wendell Holmes, James McNeill Whistler, Henry James, and Harriet Beecher Stoowe... Highly recommended for academic history of photography collections."--Eric Lindermann, "Library Journal"
