Picture Paradise

Picture paradise
Asia-Pacific photography 1840s-1940s

Gael Newton

Picture paradise is a delightful introduction to the early photography from this diverse region covering India and Sri Lanka, Southeast and East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, to the west coast of North America. It includes pioneer local photographers as well as European photographers working in the region and reveals the rich heritage and the many outstanding achievements of the first century of photography in the Asia-Pacific region. It features over eighty photographs and albums ranging from gem-like daguerreotype portraits through modern film photography.
