This the title of the book I am reading now. Here is a link to the publisher's page:
I always admired impressionism as a school of art and I did not know that photography had such a movement and that it was struggling so early to acquire the title of art. It is fascinating what these artists were able to do using the Gum Bichromate and Oil Transfer methods. I firs knew about these methods by reading about the work of František Drtikol and saw some of his work.
The picture to the left is one of the excellent work of Edward Steichen (self portrait)
So, I would recommend this book to all those who are looking to additional dimensions in pictures by adding an emotional dimension to the pictures by taking them and altering them in certain ways to express a certain impressions / expression.
