Program: 150 Years of Photography in Charlevoix: 19th Century Photographers

In conjunction with its current exhibit of “150 Years of Photography in Charlevoix” at the Museum at Harsha House, the Charlevoix Historical Society is presenting a fully illustrated program on the town’s first four professional photographers whose work is known.   Presenting the program will be exhibit sponsor and guest curator Ole Lyngklip of New York City.  Lyngklip will begin the program with a brief mention of the beginnings of photography, the types of photos popular in the 1870s-1890s era and how they evolved,  the first photographers who came to Charlevoix or the immediate region in those years, then concentrate on the four whose local work has survived from the late 1800s.  All of them produced a remarkable visual record that captured Charlevoix’s early history during the years it was moving from a provincial backwater into national and even international recognition.  Almost all the photos that will be shown are originals from the Society’s Bob Miles Photo Collection that now numbers over 20,000 scanned and digitized. The program will take place in the Charlevoix Public Library’s Community Room on Tuesday, July 2, at 6:30 p.m. Call (231) 547-0373 for more information.  There is no admission charge.
