Apparitions | the photograph and its image

Talk: Collecting Photography, with Geoffrey Batchen | Saturday December 16, 2pm
Saturday October 14 to Sunday December 17 2017
Adam Art Gallery, Wellington

Curated by Geoffrey Batchen and his Honours students

Apparitions examines the dissemination of photographic images during photography’s earliest decades. Curated by Geoffrey Batchen and his 2017 Honours class, the show draws on both private and public collections (including Te Papa, the Turnbull Library and the Auckland Museum). Apparitions displays rare daguerreotypes from England, France, Germany, and the United States, calotypes by photography’s English inventor William Henry Fox Talbot, and lithographs, wood engravings, steel engravings and other illustrations based on early photographs. The focus is on the reproducibility and mobility of the photographic image.

Apparitions is supported by the Ronald Woolf Memorial Endowment.
