A thorough examination of Baldus's important role in the early history of French photography, this substantial study showcases 86 works produced by the German-born artist (1813-1889) in the 1850s and 60s, among them numerous striking views of buildings, monuments and ruins in Paris and southern France, depictions of railroad stations, bridges and construction projects, panoramic landscapes, and documentary images of the 1856 floods in Lyon and Avignon. Fine full-page reproductions of the exhibited photographs are prefaced by a lengthy critical overview of Baldus's career (illustrated with many additional works by the artist) and a discussion of his contributions to the development of architectural photography in Second Empire France.
