September 20th, Los Angeles: “Photography Through the Years: Then and Now” Lecture Series

Julia Dean Photo Workshops
Lecture Series: Photography Through the Years: Then and Now with Issa Sharp

Thursday, September 20, 2012, 7:3–9:30 pm
At door: $15 General | $10 Student | $45 for entire series

“This lecture/presentation series is a fun and insight-filled exploration of how and why photography has evolved to where it is today. By examining where photography has been from its beginning up to the present moment, you will have more background when trying to guess where photography is heading tomorrow.

We begin with an introduction to major creative trends and ideas in the history of photography – from its invention to its 21st century present. Artistic, social, and technological currents of the medium will be covered in depth. The series will include discussion on: why in old photos people don’t smile and how that’s evolved into saying “cheese;” the long fight for photography to be accepted as art; the power of the photograph for social change; how the development of ‘home’ cameras has affected the art of photography; and why 19th century processes are so in vogue today.

Images from the Birth of Photography by Jeremy Rowe

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.”
