== Život a dílo ==
Nejdříve pracoval v obchodu s klenoty ve městě [[Saratoga]], ale brzy přestěhoval své podnikání do [[New York City]]. Krátce na to se začal věnovat fotografii, poté, co jej instruoval a inspiroval [[Samuel Morse]]. Byl jedním z prvních, kdo praktikoval daguerreotypický proces, jako první otevřel v roce 1840 americkou fotografickou galerii na Broadwayi
, a nabízel portrét za 5 doalrů.
<!-- He created remarkably detailed portraits, using to the full the remarkable tonal rendition of the process. He selected his clients from New York's society elite, calling them " Distinguished Persons of the Age" and eschewing the political and entertainment figures favoured by his rival, [[Mathew Brady]]. The quality of Gurney's portraits soon ensconced him as the finest daguerreotypist in [[Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898|Gotham]].<ref>[http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/adag/ho_2005.100.325.htm Metropolitan Museum of Art]</ref>
Gurney's photographic skills received numerous accolades, including a write-up in the [[Scientific American]] of 5 December 1846. The [[New York Illustrated News]] , in an 1853 article, wrote that his establishment at 707 Broadway '' "consisted of nine spacious rooms, devoted exclusively to this art. "'' In the 1840s Gurney showed his images at numerous exhibitions such as the [[American Institute Fair]] and later at the [[ The Crystal Palace|Crystal Palace]] in London, achieving international renown. His business flourished and in 1858 he built a three-story white marble studio at 770 Broadway to house his pictures.
Gurney played a leading role in the training of the first wave of pioneering photographers such Mathew Brady, who made a name for himself as a civil war photographer. Brady had been employed as a journeyman making jewelry cases for E. Anthony & Co., and also made display cases for Gurney's daguerreotypes. -->
