GRANVILLE — On Saturday, July 10, the Slate Valley Museum will welcome Saratoga County History Center Director of Education Anne Clothier to present, Looking History in the Eye: A Brief Overview of 19th Century Photography, a program exploring nineteenth-century photography.
Clothier, a trained museum professional and historian, has a lifelong interest in historic objects and photography and has spent over two decades exploring, researching, and honing her own skills in reading and identifying historical photographs. During this program, she will show attendees how to examine real daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes, cartes de visite, stereoviews, cabinet cards and other photographs and how to identify early photographic methods. She will also teach techniques for interpreting images, as well as ways to narrow down the date of an image.
This is a hands-on, discussion-filled program. Participants are welcomed to bring a magnifying glass and any early photographs or family albums that they may have at home.
The program will take place 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 10. It will be offered both on-site at the Museum and it will be online for people to stream live in their homes.
The program will be streamed live online for free to all. Pre-registration information for the virtual event will be available on the Museum’s website and Facebook pages.
The Slate Valley Museum is located at 17 Water St. in Granville. More information is available at www.SlateValleyMuseum.org.
