Dear colleagues,


I'm delighted to announce the publication of my new book:


Jillian Lerner, Experimental Self-Portraits in Early French Photography<https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Frb.gy%2Fez2ifk&data=04%7C01%7CSerge.Noiret%40eui.eu%7C831b317cd2c54a291b7a08d882654f7f%7Cd3f434ee643c409f94aa6db2f23545ce%7C0%7C1%7C637402718932865723%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=eZPQrYPtI72ZwTEwteUVPWonTaERg8aILKi3QeIUetA%3D&reserved=0>, Routledge History of Photography Series (2020). 192 pp, 55 illustrations


This study explores a range of experimental self-portraits made in France between 1840 and 1870, including remarkable images by Hippolyte Bayard, Nadar, Duchenne

de Boulogne, and Countess de Castiglione. Adapting photography for different social purposes, each of these pioneers showcased their own body as a living artifact and

iconic attraction.

Jillian Lerner considers performative portraits that exhibit uncanny transformations of identity and embodiment. She highlights the tactical importance of photographic

demonstrations, promotions, conversations, and the mongrel forms of montage, painted photographs, and captioned specimens. The author shows how photographic

practices are mobilized in diverse cultural contexts and enmeshed with the histories of art, science, publicity, urban spectacle, and private life in nineteenth-century France.

Tracing calculated and creative approaches to a new medium, this research also contributes to an archaeology of the present. It furnishes a prehistory of the “selfie” and

offers historical perspectives on the forces that reshape human perception and social experience.
