This title shows how the window has provided photography with one of its richest and most enduring themes. Photographers have been irresistibly drawn to the window as a powerful source of inspiration throughout the history of the medium. As one of the first camera subjects, the window is literally and figuratively linked to the photographic process itself. By bringing together key works, arranged thematically rather than chronologically, and presenting pairings within broader stylistic movements, this volume examines the motif of the window as a symbol of photographic vision. The theme is presented in a wide range of contexts, from one of the earliest images by William Henry Fox Talbot and Julia Margaret Cameron's 1864 allegorical use of the motif, to works by members of the Photo-Secession, including Gertrude Kasebier and Fred Holland Day to twentieth-century photographs by William Eggleston, Walker Evans, and Lee Friedlander.
