  • Now and Then


This gorgeous book reinterprets traditional studio portraiture, translating each image beautifully from the original mediums of daguerreotype and tintype into a completely new image and reimagining the working class faces of the the nineteenth century as everything from superheroes to villains, escape artists , animals, wizards, Godzilla, and Darth Vader. Gross's work is both a testament to the strength and depth of some of the first photographic images of people ever created, as well as proof of his skill and range in creating lasting iconography modern readers will want to savor and collect - just as these images were faithfully collected more than a century ago.
