Untitled (Farm Animals), 1850's. Creator: Adolphe Braun (French, 1812-1877)

Untitled (Farm Animals), 1850's. This charming view of village life by Braun is one of only about five known large-scale prints produced from a small number of negatives. It represents one of the earliest studies of animals not portrayed by a daguerreotype. This complex and densely filled composition is beautifully balanced and enhanced by the skillful use of natural light in order to highlight the animals. The abundant clarity of detail suggests that Braun intended to market these photographs to visual artists as models for their compositions, just as he did with flower studies accomplished around the same time.

The Miners Bridge, on the Llugwy, North Wales, 1857. Creator: Roger Fenton (British, 1819-1869)

The Miners Bridge, on the Llugwy, North Wales, 1857. Roger Fenton was a versatile and prolific artist who abruptly ended his brief, 12-year career as a professional photographer to return to the practice of law. Nevertheless, his architectural and landscape photographs have brought him recognition as the greatest British photographer of the 1850s. In this picturesque scene, Fenton focused on a single figure ascending a precarious wooden bridge that hangs suspended between two craggy surfaces. He often included people in his photographs to indicate scale and to enliven the composition. Fenton's wet collodion negative rendered the texture of the riverbed in minute detail, transforming the dark tones of the rocks and the random pattern of the light-coloured lichens into a lively, abstract design. The slow speed of the negative, relative to the swift movement of the stream, turned the rushing water into a dense, white cloud.

Sand Dunes, Carson Desert, Nevada, 1867. Creator: Timothy H. O'Sullivan (American, 1840-1882)

Sand Dunes, Carson Desert, Nevada, 1867. Timothy H. OSullivan's Civil War experiences prepared him for the hardship of serving from 1867 to 1869 as photographer for the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel. Led by geologist Clarence King, the expedition's goal was to map and describe a strip of land along the 40th parallel in California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming. This territory coincided roughly with the route of the railroad that would link the east and west coasts in 1869. Here, OSullivan recorded the elusive shifting dunes near Sand Springs, Nevada, including the mule-drawn ambulance he used to transport water necessary for his darkroom. OSullivan's work was less picturesque than that of his contemporaries, using light to define form rather than for dramatic effect. Most significantly, he compressed space by focusing on the textures in both the foreground and background, which resulted in a unified visual whole.
