Daguerreotype to Digital: A Presentation of Photographic Processes

Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres Street
Admission is free.

During their lifetimes, Kemper and Leila Williams, founders of THNOC, rarely sought out photographs for their collection of historic and artistic Louisiana objects. But THNOC began growing its print, negative, and film holdings in earnest only a few years after opening. In the last 40 years, individual items-as well as large bodies of work and several photographers' archives-have been added through gift and purchase. Today the museum has more than 100,000 photographic images.

This exhibition offers a look at close to two dozen photographic processes and techniques, all drawn from our holdings. The selection covers the medium's history from the daguerreotype, which came to New Orleans in 1840, barely six months after its introduction in France, to images made using the digital technology of today.
