    Uh…the aesthetic wasn’t limited to daguerrotypes of the day. And actually, daguerrotypes aren’t the same as photographs. They are not printed or developed on paper. They are on metal. Quite wonderful, they are.

    …pick, pick, pick…

    The impotence theme just struck me because I watched the two films in succession…thanks to you! (And our local library system.)

    Yeah, photos, you’re right, but it’s good to keep in mind just how different a medium Daguerreotypes are. It’s quite startling when you see on for real…in a book they look pretty much like any other print.

    Saudek has a very consistent and refined aesthetic.
