Likeness and Landscape: Thomas M. Easterly and the Art of the Daguerreotype

Describes Easterly's work with early photographic processes. Unlike other daguerreotypists, Easterly also made an unusual number of landscapes on his silvery plates as well as the more typical portraits. He continued using daguerreotype into the 1870s, long after other photographers had switched to the glass-plate collodion process.
