"The reader who expects to find in this book an abstruse account of the processes of photography will be delighted to discover that nothing is further from the truth. While the various processes are dealt with knowledgeably and adequately in passing, and while the photographer will no doubt learn much from these pages, the story of photography in Australia marches side by side with the story of Australia itself, as the settlement was in its infancy when Daguerre discovered the process to which his name has been given."
