Event Description

This exhibition features works from the dawn of photography in the 1840s through the early 20th century. While it includes works by well-known pioneers in the medium from Henry Fox Talbot to Gertrude Käsebier, the exhibition features copious works by anonymous photographers in the wide variety of "types" — Daguerreotype, ambrotype, tintype, cyanotype, in addition to salt, albumen, and gelatin silver prints — to demonstrate the nature of photography as a truly universal form of expression, documentation, and self-creation adopted by the masses almost from the moment of it's invention. The exhibition is drawn entirely from the private collection of Nigel Maister, Professor of Theater at the University of Rochester, New York.
