Welcome to the History of Still Photography

instrumental music Hi there! I’m Michelle Pacansky-Brock and I’ll be your instructor for the History of Still Photography. This is a tin type from about 1860. Why is it that even though these images were not fragile,
people still carried them around in cases? How did cameras like this one transform photography from a specialized trade to something anyone could do? How can a photograph of a specific time and a specific place mean something different to every viewer? Do you think about how those photographs that you view everyday affect you and how you feel about yourself? Enjoy your journey! I’ll see you online!
