At their most basic, the machines we call cameras all do the same thing. They capture light. In 1839, Louis-Jacques Mande Daguerre figured out how to transfer that light onto copper, allowing us to record and preserve images for the future. These amazing mechanisms go back nearly 200 years – and have continued to evolve ever since. Journey behind the lens and discover how cameras developed into the digital tools of today. Exhibit open February 24, 2023 through January 7, 2024.
