Curational comment from "Dawn's Early Light: The First 50 Years of American Photography", October 20, 2011 - May 4, 2012, Hirshland Exhibition Gallery in Carl A. Kroch Library, Cornell University
Likely created for the public to order photographs, this sample board illustrates Sarony's eccentric style. He positioned his sitters in unconventional poses and elicited unusually animated expressions. Specializing in photographs of actors and actresses, he became one of America's most famous photographers.
