Since its appearance as an art form in itself in the early 1900s, photography has developed in leaps and strides, rivaling traditional modes of portraiture in ever-innovative forms, from heliogravures to digital prints and even mobile phone shots -- and the works here are evidence of just how varied and ever-innovative this art form is.
For example, Esser depicts a provincial gothic church, as in Rumilly-les-Vaudes, 2007, from the ongoing "Combray" series, begun in 2007, or the water in a canal amid the trees, as in Pontorson, 2007, from the same series; both are heliogravures on handmade paper printed with no blacks, only an infinite range of grays.
