This important book is the first major exploration of the impact of photography on the American culture during the nineteenth century. The essays by six noted scholars in this field examine such topics as the use of photography in the opening of the West, the development of studio portraiture, the popularity of landscape photography, the use of photography during the Civil War, the impact of photography on American literature and popular culture, and the movement toward "artistic" photography. Many of the 244 illustrations have never before been published.
