Description

Abel Alexander is part of that first generation of researchers and photography enthusiasts who joined forces to value this discipline in the field of arts and heritage. This book rescues the work of over thirty years dedicated passionately to the history of early photography in Argentina.

It is an anthology of texts that explores the experience of the early photography studios in Buenos Aires, such as Witcomb, Chandler, Chute & Brooks, Freitas, and Lucien Cantón. It also covers the expansion of this technique in various towns in the province towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, as well as its relationship with different social groups of the time, such as the Afro-Argentine community, gauchos, and the Italian immigrant community. Additionally, the book includes an appendix that features research on stereoscopic photographs and erotic daguerreotypes.

As Laura Malosetti Costa states in the foreword, "These fragile papers are stronger than bricks" not only contributes to the recognition of Abel Alexander's historiographical work but also continues to inspire this vocation in future generations.
