Salon.com recently posted an interview and slideshow, "Postcards from the Dawn of Photography," which is remarkable. It relates to a exhibit now on display at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, "Silver, Salt, and Sunlight: Early Photography in Britain and France." The exhibit runs through Aug. 19, 2012. The Library has a pass to the Museum of Fine Arts, purchased through the generosity of the Friends of the Library of Windham. You can book passes up to a month in advance, so plan to see this exhibit before it closes.
We have some interesting histories of photography in our collection including The History of Photography: From 1839 to the Present by Beaumont Newhall [770.9 NEW].
