Hercules Florence : 1833, a descoberta isolada da fotografia no Brasil by Boris Kossoy( Book )

27 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La búsqueda de lo que hoy conocemos como fotografía forma parte una compleja trama de experimentos llevados a cabo por numerosos científicos y aficionados a las artes no solo en las grandes metrópolis europeas, sino también en los sitios más apartados de la civilización occidental. Esta obra nos presenta las pesquisas, zozobras y hallazgos de Hercule Florence, francés afincado en el interior de Brasil, quien, en 1833, logró fijar imágenes visibles a través de la cámara oscura, además de proponer el uso del negativo y bautizar el descubrimiento con el nombre que hoy le damos: fotografía. Después de más de doscientos años de su nacimiento, resulta fascinante conocer a quien imaginó diferentes experimentos precursores de la fotografía. Su descubrimiento no cabe dentro del mundo de las coincidencias, sino que responde a la búsqueda decimonónica por mejorar los medios de reproducción de la imagen, privilegiada desde entonces como una senda del conocimiento. El análisis de Kossoy no se agota con la fotografía; por el contrario, a partir de ella abre el camino a la reflexión sobre las maneras en que la cultura latinoamericana ha sido abordada."

The pioneering photographic work of Hercule Florence by Boris Kossoy( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book delivers an in-depth analysis of Hercule Florence, who is virtually unknown despite being among the world's photographic pioneers. Based on the texts of various manuscripts, letters, diaries, notes, and advertisements, this book answers numerous questions surrounding Florence's work, including the materials, methods, and techniques he employed and why it took more than a century for his discovery to come to light. Kossoy's groundbreaking research establishes Florence's use of "photographie" to describe the product of his experiments, half a decade before Sir John Herschel recommended "photography" to Henry Fox Talbot. This book aims to change the fact that despite its cultural and historical importance, Florence's photographic breakthrough remains largely unknown in the English-speaking world

Hercule Florence : la découverte isolée de la photographie au Brésil by Boris Kossoy( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hercule Florence, français originaire de Nice, réalisa, à partir de 1833 au Brésil, des expériences inédites sur des matériaux photosensibles et sur des procédés de fixation de copies sur papier. Ses recherches tombèrent cependant dans l'anonymat et demeurèrent pendant 140 ans sans vérification scientifique. Elles furent cependant sauvées de l'oubli par Boris Kossoy dans les années 70 qui démontra historiquement et scientifiquement leur caractère novateur. Ainsi, sa découverte montre que la photographie pouvait être conçue par certains esprits en avance sur leur temps, indépendamment de l'endroit où ils se trouvaient

Image and memory : photography from Latin America, 1866-1994 : FotoFest by FotoFest 1992( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

FotoFest 1992, a major festival of international photography in Houston, brought Latin American photography into focus for a wide public audience. Offering a diverse selection of photographers, countries, artistic movements, and subject matter, the shows revealed a photographic tradition rich in both history and creativity. Drawing from the more than 1,000 images exhibited by FotoFest, this book documents the work of fifty photographers from ten countries. The photographs range from the opening of the Brazilian frontier in the 1880s to documentary images from El Salvador's 1980-1992 civil war to works of specifically aesthetic and experimental intent. Many of the photographs appear here in print for the first time. Wendy Watriss's opening essay provides the curatorial overview for the book in her essay. Lois Parkinson Zamora examines some of the roots of visual imagery in Latin American cultures. An essay by Boris Kossoy addresses the history of Latin American photography in the nineteenth century, delving into the social iconography that evolved from the mingling of indigenous and European traditions. Fernando Castro covers the contemporary scene and the debate over "artistic" versus documentary work. An extensive bibliography by Marta Sanchez Philippe and artist biographies conclude the book
