The simplest way for photography to appear artistic was to take on the trappings of painting. William Lake Price (1810-1896), a watercolor painter, took this literal approach by dressing up his subjects in the style of the Royal Academicians. The problem with this imitative manner is that it did not go past the surface appearance and explore photography's innate language.
