A three-day conference exploring the practice, profession, scholarship, preservation and access to photography’s history, present day expression and projected opportunities and challenges for the future.
The conference offers a forum for reporting recent research findings, sharing current professional and scholarly practices, and discussing subjects pertinent to the broadly defined history and future of photography, including motion pictures. The conference will engage practitioners, librarians, archivists and the diverse scholarly disciplines and a variety of research methods on historically significant subjects and topics of future interest.
PhotoHistory/PhotoFuture is sponsored and organized by RIT Press, the Institute’s scholarly book publishing enterprise, and The Wallace Center at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Following the presentation of scholarship, the conference concludes with a photography-focused Antiquarian Show and Sale on Sunday.
