The development and rapid spread of Louis Daguerre's photographic invention in France is brilliantly illustrated by a variety of daguerreotypes drawn from the collection of the Musee d'Orsay.On January 7th 1839, during a session of the Academy of Sciences in Paris, the physicist and politician Francois Arago presented a new process to reproduce images in a dark room, using mechanical and chemical means and without manual intervention. This procedure became known as the daguerreotype and marked the official birth of photography. Louis Daguerre's invention, in which a single image is exposed directly onto a mirror-polished copper plate coated with silver halide particles, definitively altered the way we look at the world and the representations we make of it.Organized to complement an exhibition at the Musee d'Orsay of British calotypes (the first paper-based photographic process perfected by William Fox Talbot), this collection of French daguerreotypes drawn from the Musee d'Orsay emphasizes the particular aesthetic of these unique photographs, which are at once positive and negative.

Book Description Five Continents, Milano, 2007. softcover. Condition: NUOVO. Il dagherrotipo, fotografia unica eseguita su una lastra metallica, positivo e negativo insieme, è dotato di una vivida e speculare nitidezza e di un'estetica tutta particolare. Per la precisione delle linee e la resa esatta dei dettagli affascinò prima l'Accademia delle scienze parigina, e subito dopo un pubblico sempre più vasto. La collezione del Musée d'Orsay, una delle più cospicue al mondo, grazie alla vasta gamma dei soggetti rappresentati permette di ricostruire le condizioni in cui l'invenzione di Daguerre è nata e si è diffusa in modo così rapido, anche se effimero. Nel presente volume sono riprodotte, alcune per la prima volta, le più recenti acquisizioni che hanno arricchito la raccolta. cm.22x23,5 pp.30, 61 num.figg.bn.nt.
