Topics include the daguerreotype’s resonance with transcendental philosophy; the indelible photographic images of the Civil War; photography and the rise of American consumer culture, the progressive movement, and photographic “muckraking”; photography’s place in Stieglitz’s literary/artistic circle; and photography and American postwar social alienation.
