About When This You See, Remember Me: The Photography of Everett Scholfield and George Tingley
Take a walk back in time through the streets of Mystic in the late 1800s with this selection of portraits by photographers Everett Scholfield and George Tingley. The exhibition explores the advances in photographic technology and techniques in studio photography of the time from the perspective of both the sitter and the photographer. Subjects include people of different backgrounds, occupations, and ages. In addition to portraits, the exhibit features original backdrops, cameras, coupons, and ads.
Members will be able to experiment with props and poses as well as practice composing a scene viewed upside down through a camera.
