History of Photography

The exhibition includes over 90 photographs drawn from museums, libraries, and collections that illustrate how changing technique and technology influenced the photographer's work, and demonstrate the powerfully expressive quality of the medium. Visitors can explore daguerreotypes, view how photography was used to illustrate movement in the works of Edweard Muybridge, and explore contemporary digital imagery.
