Summary

Description
English: In 1857 he made his best-known allegorical work, The Two Ways of Life. This was a seamlessly montaged combination print made of thirty-two images in about six weeks. First exhibited at the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition of 1857, the work shows two youths being offered guidance by a patriarch. Each youth looks toward a section of a stage-like tableaux vivant - one youth is shown the virtuous pleasures and the other the sinful pleasures.
Čeština: V roce 1857 vystavil Rejlander v Manchesteru na výstavě soudobého umění alegorickou fotomontáž Dva způsoby života. Snímek o rozměrech 40×80 cm se skládal ze 30 záběrů. 25 modelů znázorňuje na jedné polovině ctnosti a na druhé zábavu a neřesti. Fotografie vyvolala pohoršení i nadšení. Uznání se autorovi dostalo od královny Viktorie, která fotografii zakoupila pro prince Alberta.
