The Art of Cameras, and Its History In-Person / Online

Most people think of cameras as something in their phones, but cameras have a long and varied history. Photography was invented in 1826, with the sole purpose of recording a permanent record of an event. Soon, however, this single-mindedness became old fashioned, and gave way to the camera as a part of our society’s fashion sense.

Cameras were designed to be gimmicky, intricate, and extraordinary, made to be noticed or, conversely, to be indistinguishable from ordinary objects.

Join us in looking at cameras of all shapes, sizes, and designs (When was the last time you took a picture with a tuna fish?) as we try to capture the charm, fun, creativity, and the art of cameras.

Attend in-person in the Downtown Library Community Room or online via Zoom.
