Young America: The Daguerreotypes of Southworth & Hawes Sale

By Grant Romer (Editor) and Brian Wallis (Editor)

From 1845 to 1862, Southworth & Hawes maintained the most celebrated photography studio in the United States, elevating the new medium of daguerreotype photography to the level of art. Their daguerreotypes reflect a quintessentially American aesthetic and embody an emerging national culture and spirit. The most significant publication to date on Southworth & Hawes, Young America includes analyses of the importance of the work, a chronology, an annotated bibliography, an exploration of the daguerreotype process, brief biographies of the sitters, and a Southworth & Hawes genealogy, making the catalogue an invaluable resource for researchers as well as general readers. The accompanying exhibition is on view at the George Eastman House (Rochester, NY) from October 1, 2005 through January 8, 2006.
