Members get a special chance to view William Henry Fox Talbot and the Promise of Photography before it opens to the public.
Be first to visit this exquisite gem of an exhibition! Curator of Photography, Dan Leers, has crafted the largest US exhibition of Talbot’s photography presented in the last 15 years. This exhibition features more than 30 works by William Henry Fox Talbot and his circle and highlights important additions to CMOA’s photography collection never before seen in our galleries.
Then, attend a 2 p.m. lecture and book signing by Larry Schaaf, the Director of the William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonné and a contributor to the exhibition catalogue.
