Our virtual exhibition on Google Cultural Institute
Together with Europeana and Google Cultural Institute we created "Photography On A Silver Plate", the virtual exhibition on the first truly successful photographic process: the daguerreotype.
The exhibition will be alive on February 10th, 2015.
The daguerreotyes presented in the exhibition have been selected from the Europeana open content archives. They show us the faces, places and histories of the nineteenth century and testify to the conceptual breakthrough initiated by photography in the field of visual mass communication: that of satisfying, yesterday as in today's digital age, our desire to permanently record the fleeting and unrepeatable moments of our lives.
