Photography was entangled with art from the very moment of its invention by painter and printmaker Louis Daguerre in 1839. This is the first publication to explore photography's complex and fascinating inter-relationship with painting and sculpture in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Spanning seventy-five years from the daguerreotype to very early colour photography, the book explores pioneer photographers, the Pre-Raphaelite circle and ravishing Symbolist and Pictorialist works. It features stunning works from artists such as Millais and Rossetti to Henry Fox Talbot, Roger Fenton, Julia Margaret Cameron, James McNeill Whistler and Alfred Stieglitz. Showcasing iconic and rarely seen works, this book includes 200 illustrations accompanied by refreshing new scholarship; making this the essential book for collectors, gallery-goers and photography enthusiasts alike. 0Exhibition: Tate Britain, London, UK (11.05-25.09.2016).
