Professor Graham Smith Presents An Illustrated Talk On His Recent Book "Photography And Travel"

Thursday February 28, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Professor Graham Smith's lavishly illustrated talk will cover the inventions of photography in 1839 and then describe early applications of the new medium to the practice of travel. He will share a sampling of rare 19th century photographs from Italy and Scotland, two countries he knows well, as well as contemporaneous pictures from Egypt and China, countries he knows not at all.

Graham’s recent book Photography and Travel will be for sale, and the event includes a book signing.
