Event Info

What does our understanding of photographic technology tell us about photography?
This one-day conference interrogates what photo history looks like when we foreground the technology that made the images. The conference will include an array of international speakers, a keynote address by Dr Michael Pritchard, author of A History of Photography in Fifty Cameras (2014), and a demonstration of cameras from Larry S. Pierce American field camera collection by collector Larry Pierce.

Full program available here.

The conference will be held as a hybrid live event, on-site at the California Museum of Photography and livecast via Zoom. The conference is free and open to all. Registration is required.
