Summary, etc.:
Jean, a young Parisian with few skills and even fewer prospects, seems an unlikely candidate for assistant to famed photographer Stp̌hane, an obsessive perfectionist living in isolation since his wife's unexpected death. Yet he soon finds himself in his new employer's vast, decaying mansion, helping to create lifesized daguerrotypes so vivid they seem almost to contain some portion of their subjects' souls. Their model is most often Stp̌hane's daughter and muse, Marie, and as she and Jean fall in love they realize they must hatch a plot to leave Stp̌hane's haunted world forever. But is there something malevolent within the massive daguerrotypes that will prevent their escape?
