Reading.: Garnet.. 1997.. Map, colour and black and white photographic plates, xv + 144pp, bibliography, index, dustjacket, signed by author on half title-page. This book provides the first-ever comprehensive history of photography in Korea and identifies many previously unattributed images. Photographs from key private collections and museum archives in Europe America and Russia are collected in this volume, forming a unique anthology and giving insight into the cultural heritage of Korea. It includes the first photographs ever taken on Korean soil, by the famous war photographer Felice Beato. He accompanied the American squadron of five ships which landed in 1871 to attempt to open Korea to trade. His photographs show the fighting that ensued and the Korean people the Americans encountered. Other early photographs include royal portraits taken in the 1890's. Queen Min, the last queen of Korea, was assassinated by the Japanese in 1895 and the striking image presented here is the only known photograph of her. With a wide range of pictures by the photographic pioneers who first travelled to the country, including stereoscopes, glass slides and albumen prints - all reproduced in duotone- plus hand-tinted photographs reproduced in colour, readers will for the first time be able to see the people, the landscape, the town-life and the crafts and costumes of traditional Korea.
