Malcolm Daniel, curator of photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and an authority on nineteenth-century photographs, will join the Friends of Photography in the Morse Study Room for an up-close-and-personal look at some of the Museum’s treasures of early photography, including discussion of the medium’s first processes, the aesthetic and historical context of the pictures, and issues of connoisseurship and collecting in this area.
