Easton's book examines the relationship between the paintings and the amateur photos of the Nabis and other artists of the Post-Impressionist era through scholarly texts on individual artists and many beautiful, lavishly produced pictures—many of which are coming out of archives for the first time. What Snapshot
teaches us is that it is the differences, and not the similarities, between these paintings and photographs that hold the key to the relevance of their comparison. —Shelley Rice
