Product Details

Praise

Nadar’s book has finally been translated into English…. [M]any of the vignettes in When I Was a Photographer are infused with his rebellious zest.—The Wall Street Journal

This compact volume gives the sense of being present for the invention of photography…. [Nadar] writes engagingly of photographing a dead man and meeting a bee tamer, and we are charmed.

San Francisco Chronicle

When I Was a Photographer brims with Nadar’s wisdom on a multitude of subjects and subtleties of creative work.

Brain Pickings

The book presents a fresh opportunity to consider a bizarre and compelling character…. In the age of the selfie, Nadar reminds us of the brave beginnings of a medium that changed the world.

Adam Begley, The Guardian
