Medicine, Photography, and the
Printed Book, 1845-1890
Medical photography has long attracted the interest of historians and archivists. This talk will address the use of photography in 19th century printed medical books, from technological and aesthetic viewpoints, as researchers and photographers pushed the existing arts to their limits. Why were these pictures taken? Who saw them? Were they meant for private study or profes- sional publication? How did they reflect the techniques and aesthetics of the rest of con- temporary photography.
