EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2013
The Department of Photographs is pairing up with the Conservation Department to house over 1000 rare daguerreotypes by the American photographic studio of Southworth & Hawes.
The Southworth & Hawes studio was a partnership between Albert Sands Southworth and Josiah Johnson Hawes, which lasted from 1843 to 1861.
The Department of Photographs at George Eastman House houses a collection of over 400,000 photographs and related items. Help provide care for this collection by donating today!
Every dollar counts!
With $20 you supply borosilicate glass for a whole plate enclosure.
With $50 you help us buy a tank of argon gas to make the housings oxygen free.
with $95 you buy all of the materials to house a whole plate (not including labor).
Imagine what $178, $216, or $438 could do!
