My friend Mike Ware will be part of a workshop program at the Met from October 4-12, which is timed to coincide with a major exhibition of early photography called Impressed by Light: British Photographs from Paper Negatives, 1840–1860
The show runs from September 25, 2007–December 30, 2007 at the Galleries for Drawings, Prints and Photographs and The Howard Gilman Galleries. Put it on your calender as a must see, and try and get the catalogue – it promises to be a very special event and publication.
