Item description for Jerry Spagnoli: Daguerreotypes by Jerry Spagnoli...

Jerry Spagnoli is one of the world's foremost daguerreotypists and this book brings together the last decade of his work, including selections from his Western Landscape and Anatomical Studies series and a comprehensive presentation of his documentary series The Last Great Daguerreian Survey of the Twentieth Century. Adopting a narrative form which unifies what at first appears to be disparate subjects, the viewer is led on a journey through a world distilled through the idiosyncratic perspective of the daguerreotype, a world which is both familiar and uncanny. Daguerreotypes have long been noted for their accuracy and veracity. In the hands of Spagnoli the technical limitations of the medium, the long exposures, odd tonalities, shallow focus and the necessity of large cumbersome cameras, are exploited to produce images which are at once completely objective yet intensely personal.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jerry Spagnoli: Daguerreotypes?

A wonderful new book by the modern master of the daguerreotype  Sep 27, 2006
It is easy to overlook how difficult the daguerreotype process is! As a fellow practitionner of the art, I know first hand that producing a flawless plate is a small miracle. So how does Jerry do it? Does he realize that by publishing a book full of wonderful and flawless images he makes it look too easy!

Seriously, this is a wonderful book, with superb reproductions of many of Jerry Spagnoli's best known images. But for me, the best part of the book was discovering yet more facets of Jerry's artistry. I was already familiar with a good chunk of his work, including his body close-ups in collaboration with Chuck Close, and his New York landscape images. These are well represented and do not disapoint, but this book had some surprises in store for me. Like the amazing images created from firecracker's explosions, reminiscent of astronomical images. Or the last image in the book, a dreamlike image of the sun poking through the clouds in a mountain scenery. And not least I thoroughly enjoyed the intelligent and thought-provoking essays.

I do wish there was a hardcover version! But in any case this book will be a treasured addition to my library.
