"160th Anniversary of Photography's Birth"
1999-08-15 until 0000-00-00
American Museum of Photography
, , USA United States of America

Photography lovers from around the world are invited to the Grand Opening of our new web exhibit, The Daguerreotypes of Southworth & Hawes. This new exhibition features images by the first American masters of photography-- Albert Sands Southworth and Josiah Johnson Hawes, whose studio in Boston produced some of the finest portaits of all time using the process invented by Daguerre.

The one-of-a-kind daguerreotypes in this exhibition were among 240 Southworth & Hawes images rediscovered last year in a basement in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The daguerreotypes--unknown and unseen for 60 years--sold for more than three million dollars at auction in April.

Along with the images, visitors to the web exhibit (direct address: www.photographymuseum.com/sandh1.html ) will find an 1855 review of Southworth & Hawes' photography and other period information. There's also a report on the April auction at Sotheby's.

The American Museum of Photography is A Museum without Walls... for an Art without Boundaries. Based on a privately-held collection of more than five thousand photographs, this virtual Museum has been honored with awards from Netscape, Yahoo! , USA Today and others. It is a Yahoo! Pick of the Year.
