The subject of this book, which is the first to be devoted to a single photograph, is Camille Silvy's remarkable River Scene. Hailed as a masterpiece when it was first exhibited in France in 1859, the photograph is accompanied here by newly commissioned color photographs by noted photographer Stephen Shore. In a provocative essay, Haworth-Booth discusses the history of the photograph in the context of attitudes of the day toward photography and photographic exhibitions, outlines the influences on Silvy, and examines his eventual influence on others. This is the third book in the Getty Museum Studies on Art (GMSA) series.
