  • Beschrijving

    Consisting of sixty-nine boards of photographs, Hippolyte Bayard’s Album d’Essai attests to his trials and errors, test and experimentation, at a time when photography was not yet photography.
    His prints on paper "were like nothing we’d ever seen" wrote critic Francis Wey in the review La Lumière in 1851: they evoked "The idea of sorcery".

    Each one is a poem in itself:
    "They marry the impression of reality to the fantasy of the dream. (…) The light Gazes them and the shadow caresses them: the day seems fantastic and the singular sobriety of the effect gives them a monumental appearance".

    The density of the first test with negative prints are intermingled with the softness of newer direct positive images. We contemplate these prints "as through a thin curtain of vapors" said Wey: "the drawings are so prodigiously blurred that it is impossible to discern a line".
