LOCATION: The Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville

Who did invent photography? Fox Talbot or Daguerre? Perhaps it was neither, but really someone else in 1717? Or was it the clever folks in the Italian Renaissance? We will explore these central historical issues, look at digital images of older photographs, and learn about the work of important players throughout the various stages of the development of photography. We will also look to see how the medium fits into the various parallel art movements. The Princeton University Art Museum will serve as a resource for material.
