All the mighty world : the photographs of Roger Fenton, 1852-1860 by Gordon Baldwin ( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Roger Fenton (1819-1869) was England's most celebrated photographer during the 1850s, the young medium's most glorious moment. After studying law and painting, Fenton took up the camera in 1851 and immediately began to produce highly original images. During a decade of work he mastered every photographic genre he attempted: architectural photography, landscape, portraiture, still life, reportage, and tableau vivant." "This volume presents ninety of Fenton's finest photographs, exactingly reproduced. Six leading scholars have contributed nine illustrated essays that address every aspect of Fenton's career, as well as a comprehensive, documented chronology."--BOOK JACKET

Gustave Le Gray, 1820-1884 by Sylvie Aubenas ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gustave Le Gray's life, vividly reconstructed here by Sylvie Aubenas, reads like a romantic novel. As a young painter in Rome, he fell in love with and impetuously married a young and beautiful Italian woman by whom he had six children. He then returned to Paris to take up photography and received important commissions from Napoleon III. He also astonished viewers with his painterly landscapes and ravishing seascapes." "In an abrupt reversal of fortune, Le Gray's backers wearied of his financial irresponsibility, and he was forced to declare bankruptcy and give up his studio. He abandoned his wife and children and fled Paris on a voyage to the Mediterranean with Alexandre Dumas. After traveling on his own to Beirut and Baalbek, the photographer settled in Alexandria and then Cairo, where he became drawing master to the ruler's children. He occasionally made photographs until his death in poverty there in 1884, leaving behind some of the most dazzling photographic images of his era." "This catalogue, a complete retrospective of the work of nineteenth-century photographer Gustave Le Gray, is the result of years of combing public and private collections and archives in Europe and North America. It offers, as no previous publication has, both a narrative of the photographer's life and as assessment of Le Gray's unique and important place in the history of photography." "This volume is being published to accompany the exhibition Gustave Le Gray, Photographer, held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and was originally produced in French to accompany the exhibition of Le Gray's work organized by the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris."--BOOK JACKET

Architecture in photographs by Gordon Baldwin ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the invention of photography in 1839, architecture was second only to portraiture as the most favored subject for the camera. The fact that buildings were immobile was advantageous for the long exposures needed in the early days, but architectural images were popular for other reasons: they documented dynastic, civic, and religious achievements; educated architects about construction and decorative details; and whetted curiosity about distant lands. Later photographers found innovative ways to depict structures of every era and type. Arranged chronologically, 'Architecture in Photographs' spans the history of the medium and includes works in a variety of photographic processes by such distinguished nineteenth-century practitioners as Henri le Secq, Gustave Le Gray, and Roger Fenton; twentieth-century photographers Eugène Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, and Walker Evans; contemporary artists Ed Ruscha, Lewis Baltz, and Steven Shore; and younger image makers Catherine Opie and Michael Wesely
