Malcolm Daniel explores the historical, aesthetic and technical currents that influenced French photography in the 1850s and 1860s, a time when artists of exceptional talent took up a fully mature but still handcrafted medium and created pictures that remain among the greatest masterpieces made with the camera.

This talk is followed by a related lecture, "Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris in the Age of Haussmann." A reception to meet the speakers and a viewing of the exhibition Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris follow the second lecture.
