Gustave Le Gray : Seestücke
« In the 1850s, French photographer and painter Gustave Le Gray (1820–1884) succeeded in producing an entire series of sensational but nonetheless highly poetic maritime images, using a montage technique he himself had developed, which involved printing from two different negatives.(…)Seestücke (Seascapes) presents a collection of these rare photographic beauties, which comprise some of the earliest seascapes in photographic history. Accompanied in our volume by an essay by photography historian Hubertus von Amelunxen, the 42 full-page reproductions of the sea can in themselves be read
as poems, as literary pieces in their own right. » (extrait du texte de présentation de l’éditeur).
