Daguerreotypes in the Open

Even though the personal portrait was the "bread and butter" of the daguerreotypist, the taking of exterior and scenic daguerreotypes represents a decided effort to document the face of the changing nation.

We are pleased to present this selection of eight American out-of-door daguerreotypes from the collection of Joseph Bauman who has also provided the accompanying text.
