    This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Discovering the Language of Photography: The Gernsheim Collection, on display through January 2. Drawn from the peerless collection of Helmut and Alison Gernsheim, the exhibition features masterpieces from photography's first 150 years, alongside other images that, while lesser known, are integral to the medium's history. Highlights include the first photograph (on permanent display at the Ransom Center); works by nineteenth-century masters such as Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Henry Peach Robinson; and iconic images by modern photographers such as Man Ray, Robert Capa, Edward Weston, and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

    Please be aware that the Ransom Center's Charles Nelson Prothro Theater has limited seating. Line forms upon arrival of the first person, and doors open 30 minutes in advance.

    Thank you!!

    Attached are images of one of our cameras, plus a photogenic drawing negative (and print) we made at Lacock Abbey. All are from our new body of work, The Light at Lacock, Sun Sketches in the Twilight of Photography. Mark made the cameras that we used.
