How New Jersey Photographers Captured Life Through Portraiture

June 13, 2018 at 7:00 PM | Lawrenceville, NJ | Mercer County Library, Lawrence Headquarters Branch
In the 19th century, the world was introduced to the daguerreotype, ambrotype, the tintype, and other photography advancements. Photography exploded and transformed Americans’daily lives. Portraits became commonplace and many New Jersey photographers added to the collective production of images that tell the story of men and women in the 1800s. In this PSP session, images will showcase the photography of the time and enhance the discussion of the impact of photography.
