From the publisher:
"The first comprehensive and authentic account of early Cape photography, Secure the Shadow is the result of an intensive research project based on primary sources of references only. The need to establish an accurate record of the evolution of early photography in the Cape has long been felt. While the authors' research among the early Cape newspapers revealed for the first time a tremendous amount of information covering many aspects of Cape photography, additional and supplementary information was sought and obtained from sources hitherto untapped, resulting in a well-documented work of great cultural and historical importance. The work includes biographies of pioneer photographers, chapters about the complementary partnership between photographers and artists, photographic exhibitions, photography at the Diamond Fields, photographs for sale and identification and dating of early Cape photographs."
