Photographs 1842-1896: An Early Album of the World

Overview

Co-Edited by Kaph Books x Louvre Abu Dhabi x Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac

This publication puts forward a global and documented vision of the practice of photography in the first decades of the medium, highlighting the key elements and chronological boundaries of the appropriation of photography outside of Europe. The publication also aims to present the work of local photographers and studios, in showing certain “original images” made in a particular region, while also outlining the role played by governments in power in the development and appropriation of this modern medium on a local scale. This publication gives prominence to the works, coming mainly from the Musée du Quai Branly collection, and also the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, and the Musée Guimet. The quality of the approximate 100 reproductions reveal the diversity of photographic objects presented in the exhibition (daguerreotypes, prints, albums, negatives). It also includes bibliographic entries of the photographers represented in the exhibition, entries for works of the exhibition, and a geo-historical chronology.
