Reviews

"Both exhibition and catalog offer plenty of supplementary contextual material. There is a selection of Girault's watercolors, his oil painting of the Alhambra, and one of the huge self-published volumes of his archaeological lithographs: a reminder that daguerreotypes were for the artist only a means to an end, the crude ore for more refined expressions."--Richard B. Woodward, Wall Street Journal
"Excellent work. . . . The book provides a unique opportunity to view a sustained body of work by one of the world's first working photographers and to learn about the context for his pioneering photographic work."--W. S. Johnson, Choice Connect
