Additional Details

Originally from the Collection of the Bragaglia Family; to a Private Collector.

A Bragaglia scholar has written, "Bragaglia was critical in focusing the attention of the futurists on Marey's chrono-photography. An interest in the occult led to his first photographs--attempts to capture para-psychological phenomena on dry plates--and to his writing on photography in the Turin journal Fotografia Artistica."
