"Capturing the County – The Art & Business of Early Photographers"

This exhibit highlights some of the early prolific photographers of Washtenaw County – their studio work and the evolving nature of their business. Theses men and women captured our local history in a visually compelling way. Check out the large format camera with glass plates, stereo cameras and other vintage photographic equipment in the Argus Camera corner. Look at stereoscope cards through our stereo viewer and have fun with the Viewmaster. There are interactive games with clues about identifying photos and you can even take photos with your own camera or digital device in our studio setting.
