Events for Friday, July 23, 2021
Bea Nettles explores the narrative potential of photography through constructed images often made with alternative photographic processes. This exhibition originally opened on January 31, 2020, but just six weeks later, the museum had to close due to COVID-19 and a virtual version was offered online. Now, the Eastman Museum is pleased to bring the exhibition back to our galleries for visitors to explore in person.
For over five years, photographer Jess T. Dugan and social worker Vanessa Fabbre traveled throughout the United States documenting the life stories of transgender and gender nonconforming older adults, individuals whose experiences exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class, and geographic location.
Process Demonstration: In this webinar, George Eastman Legacy Curator Kathy Connor will share Eastman’s story, early trials and challenges. Then, Historic Process Specialist Nick Brandreth will demonstrate how gelatin dry plates are made, showing the features that make them superior to wet collodion.
