Images from the Birth of Photography by Jeremy Rowe
Friday, September 23, 2011, 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Admission: $5 | Open to the public

“A one-hour tour of photographic processes from the birth of photography, focusing on the cased photographs ­of Daguerreotype, ambrotype, and tintype. The chronological presentation will weave the evolution of the processes between 1840 and 1870, with the social, cultural, and technological impacts as they developed. Each process will be described, and the session illustrated with examples from the collection of Jeremy Rowe. Examples of each process will be available for viewing after the presentation, and in the Exploring the Roots of Photography exhibition.

Dr. Jeremy Rowe has collected, researched, and written about 19th and early 20th century photographs for over 25 years. He has written Arizona Photographers 1850 – 1920: A History and Directory, Arizona Real Photo Postcards: A History and Portfolio, and Early Maricopa County 1871-1920, as well as numerous articles on photographic history.”
