John Beasly Greene 
Bank of Nile at thebes 
Salted paper print, from waxed paper negative 
9 1/16 x 10 7/8 ins 
George Eastman Museum 
In this ambiguous landscape Greene sacrifices information for pictorial effect. Nothing is clearly defined; everything is suggested. Greene's work was also published by Blanquart-Evrard in an album Le Nil: Monuments, paysages, explorations photographiques (1854).
For an analysis of this photograph: Juliet Hacking (ed.), 2012, Photography: The Whole Story, (Prestel), pp. 72-73
