In order to facilitate access to the ever-growing number of diverse texts on photography and related matters contained within this CyberArchive, we've grouped them by author on the "Texts by Author" pull-down menu here. Selecting any of the authors whose names appear on that pull-down menu will take you to the Author's Page devoted to that writer, which includes a biographical note, assorted other information, and links to all of his or her writings in the Photography Criticism CyberArchive. In this subscriber's version of the CyberArchive, one or more of these authors' texts appears in full. You will find a complete list of their archived essays on the Author's Pages you choose to examine.
The CyberArchive's other pull-down menus enable you to access this material by Category, by Subject, and by Title. These lists are updated regularly as we incorporate new material into the CyberArchive. You can also use the CyberArchive search engine here to enter keywords and narrow your search even more precisely. You'll find additional links to all four of those functions at the bottom of the "Texts by Author" pull-down menu on this page.
The authors represented in this CyberArchive have all contributed notably to the discourse on photography. In some cases, their writing preceded and anticipated the announcement of photography's invention in 1839; we've included it as evidence that, as the late Heinrich Schwarz proposed, the medium's inception resulted from cultural energies that had brewed for a long time.
