Thanks to member John Bock, a familiar face at the Photographica Fairs, for noting an interesting article by Chuck Delaney on the salt paper and albumen prints of Paris by Marville before some city streets and neighbourhoods were torn up and replaced.
The article John sent me is restricted but you can see nearly two dozen of Marville’s prints here at the National Gallery of Art in Ottawa. The exhibition has since moved on to the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art (MOMA) which is the source of the show discussed by Delaney in his article. There is a good write-up here in the NY Times. You can see the exhibition at the MOMA if you happen to visit New York this spring.
