Marcel Proust offered the twentieth century a new psychology of memory and seeing. His novel In Search of Lost Time was written in the modern age of photography and art history. In Looking Back One Learns to See: Marcel Proust and Photography brings to light Proust's photographic resources and his visual imagination. This scrupulously researched book features over 100 illustrations. Distinguished cultural historian Mary Bergstein presents various kinds of photography and photographic systems with regard to the literature of Marcel Proust, including daguerreotypes, stereoscopic cards, cartes-de-visite, postcards, book illustrations, portraiture, medical photography, spirit photography, architectural photography, and Orientalism. Photographs associated with fin-de-siecle studies of Botticelli, Leonardo, and Vermeer, are considered in terms of Proust's tastes and the historiography of art.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Aus dem facettenreichen Buch spricht die vielfaltige und teilweise widerspruchliche visuelle Kultur des 19. Jahrhunderts: Prousts Recherche bildet nur den Schnitt- und Symmetriepunkt der vielen Figuren, die sich in diesem Kaleidoskop andeuten, kurz aufleuchten und dann zu einer neuen Gestalt ubergehen." - Mattei Chiaia, Zeitschrift fur Franzoesische Sprache und Literatur, 126, 2016/1-2, 136-139. "tje groundbreaking nature of Bergstein's foray into [the] historicizing triad of French intellectualism, photography and Jewishness [...] a significant contribution to Jewish studies and visual culture." - Maya Balakirsky Katz, Images, 2017.
