"William Notman (1826-91) was a Victorian-era photographer and consummate businessman. His studio name lasted 60 years in Canada and the United States, until the last of at least 26 Notman studios was sold by his son in 1935. Beginning with the first studio in Montreal in 1856, the business grew along with technical improvements and the railroads' expansion to western Canada. Today Notman is thought of for his unusual and portable studio backdrops and imaginative composite photographs, but the Notman Photographic Company's success was based on more than gimmicks. Notman and his sons (and nephews) photographed the leading citizens of Canada and the United States and the infamous as well--such as the St. Albans Raiders, a group of U.S. Confederate bank robbers based in Canada. The official photographer for the Philadelphia Centennial exhibition, Notman was also commissioned to document the construction of the Victoria Bridge in 1858; together with his sons, he produced landscapes of newly opened territories and city and architectural views as well. Though based heavily on the Notman Photographic Archives at McGill University, this book's borrowings from other institutions indicate just how widespread the Notman name became. An example of the highest quality printing, this definitive work on Notman and his family business is highly recommended for photography collections."--Library Journal via Amazon.ca

La 4e de couverture indique : "Premier photographe canadien de renommée internationale, William Notman (1826-1891), d'origine écossaise, s'installe à Montréal en 1856. L'année même, il ouvre un studio de photographie qui restera en activité jusqu'en 1935 sous la direction de ses fils. Grâce à ses qualités d'artiste et d'homme d'affaires, Notman a connu un succès éclatant à la tête d'un réseau de plusieurs studios au Canada et aux Etats-Unis, créant un nom de marque devenu symbole d'excellence par-delà sa propre existence. Il a légué à la postérité des centaines de milliers de photographies fascinantes de la société et du territoire canadiens qui illustrent la naissance d'une nouvelle nation en Amérique du Nord. Cet héritage inestimable est aujourd'hui conservé au Musée McCord à Montréal. Cet ouvrage jette un regard neuf sur Notman et dévoile différentes facettes de son oeuvre qui préfigurent les idées et les usages de la photographie au vingtième siècle."
