AUGUSTA CURIEL Fotografie in Suriname

Suriname early photography

Van Dijk, J. e.a.,  AUGUSTA CURIEL  Fotografie in Suriname, Amsterdam 2009. Hardcover 24 x 30 cm. 192 pag.  with 238 photographs.
"From 1904 until her death in 1937 Augusta Curiel was, along with her sister Anna, the most important photographer in Suriname. Anyone who wanted their photograph taken came to her: individuals, organizations and institutions. Her photos appeared, often anonymously, in numerous publications. The book is the result of an intensive collaboration between the Museum in Paramaribo, Surinam and the Tropical Museum in Amsterdam. 
The pictures of Paramaribo are a walk through the city as it looked in the early twentieth century; you will find back many familiar places, but it offers also many amazing town faces. Many photos of the plantations, the interior and its inhabitants. This is the first book devoted to the work of Augusta Curiel, the principal photographer of her time in Suriname. Historically this is a significant photo collection, also a visual contribution to the socio-economic history of Suriname."
