PICTORIAL EFFECT/NATURALISTIC VISION: THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND THEORIES OF HENRY PEACH ROBINSON AND PETER HENRY EMERSON. Ellen Handy et al. Art Museum, Princeton University, 1994. Organized and published by Chrysler Museum, Norfolk. 104 pp. with 63 ills. 26 x 21 cm. LC 94-70204 ISBN 094074466X In English.
Illuminates one of the central debates in the history of photography through an examination of the techniques and aesthetic values promoted by two influential British photographers of the 19th century, juxtaposing staged and manipulated pictorialist tableaux by Robinson (1830-1901) with naturalistic treatments of similar subjects by Emerson (1856-1936). Two substantial essays documenting in detail the divergent attitudes toward art and photography reflected in the writings and works of the two artists are supplemented by a discussion of the continuing resonance of their polarized views in 20th-century and contemporary photography.
