Product description

Review


While considering the content of the pictures and the writing that accompanied many of them, Nickel discusses the social forces that surrounded and shaped Frith and his photography, such as his Quaker upbringing and the close relationship between science and religion in Victorian England. Exemplary documentation and well-written descriptions of Frith's photographic processes are also remarkable. -- Library Journal



Stating that Frith's photographs . . . would be better regarded if photographic history were taught as a history of ideas rather than a history of art practices or scientific discoveries, Nickel presents nearly 200 pages of carefully considered and well-written discussion about the cultural and intellectual backgrounds of Frith's time and their resonances within Frith's own life and in his 1850s photographs. . . . The reproductions are excellent and close to the originals. -- Choice

From the Back Cover

"This work leads not only to a better understanding of Frith, but also to a new perspective on the intellectual and cultural history of nineteenth-century photographic practice."--Mary Warner Marien, author of Photography: A Culture History

"Situating the photographic works of Francis Frith within the context of his culture, particularly the religious crises and attendant debates in England at mid-nineteenth century, Nickel's book brings to light considerable primary material on Frith that is a significant contribution to the field of photographic history."--Julia Ballerini, contributor, Imag(in)ing Race and Place in Colonialist Photography and Film
