Exhibition catalog. Peter Galassi argues in this book that photography was not a technical achievement without artistic roots; photography was born of the transformation in artistic outlook that, after centuries of experimentation, came to value pictures that seem to be caught by the eye rather than composed by the mind.

He also argues that photography was a legitimate child of the Western pictorial tradition.
