    20 collotypes of photographs of the Wisconsin Dells scenery, many are composites in settings using wood backgrounds and other natural objects in still life collage. Souvenir book produced by Bennett. This book contains composites that were typical of Wittemann and Stoddard souvenirs. The difference here is that Bennett constructed these more as still life collages which he photographed, rather than individual pictures tied together through painted art work. As a result of his technique these images are far more interesting than other examples because they are entirely photographic."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 102. By a Wanderer.
