180 Years of Photography

This year we are celebrating 180 years of photography. .. January 7, 1839 the Paris newspaper Gazette de France announced that Louie Daguerre, well known painter and owner of the Paris Diorama, would present to the Academy of Sciences a “…new discovery (which) will revolutionize the art of drawing”. 

At this round table we will be looking at the work of four noted (and one forgotten) pioneers of photography: Niepce / Daguerre, Fox – Talbot, Bayard and Florence. 

If you a curious about the way our avocation began, this is the presentation for you.
