In essays and beautiful color images, this RISD Museum publication explores the life and influence of artist-entrepreneur Adolphe Braun (1812-1877). Braun was the first photographer to lead campaigns of art and nature documentation in the early years of photography with aims to produce work not only commercial but useful, comprehensive, and beautiful. Braun's endeavor brought into common circulation images of nature and wonders of art from around the world.
