Publisher's Description
By 1860, photography in Rome was undergoing dramatic change. The level of detail made possible by new glass wet plate and albumen techniques encouraged photographers to take a documentary approach, focusing on architectural fragments, transitional spaces like stairways, even citizens going blurrily about their daily business—in short, on everything but the city’s oft-photographed basilicas and ruins. The candid, frequently off-balance images collected in this unique volume, by photographers such as Vincento Carlo, Domenico Baldessare Simelli, Eugène Gustave Chauffourier, A. de Bonis and Edmond Lebel, anticipate both street photography and postmodern photographic abstraction. These photographers have only recently begun to emerge from obscurity and remain poorly documented. Indeed, many of their images have never been exhibited.
