Early photography America

FISCHER, M. & KRAUS, M., Exploring the Archive. Historical Photography from Latin America, Berlin 2015. Soft cover 24 x 17 cm. 428 pages with 189 photographs.
“The Ethnologisches Museum in Berlin holds more than 6,500 historical black-and-white photographs from Latin America. These images were produced between 1868 and 1936 and mainly depict ethnological and archaeological motifs, although some portray views of urban or natural landscapes. The contributions to this volume focus on particular series from this extensive archive. In doing so, they illustrate the enormous potential for research inherent within such “repositories of memory”, represent a diverse set of approaches and provide varied interpretations of historical photographs”
