Who knew they could take photographs in the 1840s? Not me, that’s for sure!
Maine Photography gives us a fascinating look – literally, with lots of photos – of the evolution of picture taking. No selfies back then! Lucky them!
Published by Down East Books and written by Libby Bichof, an associate professor of history at USM, Susan Danley, a curator of art exhibits, and Earle Shettleworth, our state historian, the book gets deep into the history of photography, featuring short biographies of outstanding photographers through the ages.
