    Unidentified photographer. James Gardner Vail Skylight Studio, 6 Seneca St, Geneva, NY, ca. 1862–1880.

Before electricity, early photography studios were illuminated by large skylights. Some of these historic buildings still stand, and traces of their original details remain visible. Photographic antiquarian Nick Graver has been conducting research on and providing full-day field trips to these locations for more than forty years. Join us as he takes us on a digital tour of these unique studios and discusses their importance to the history of photography in our region.  

Free to members; included with museum admission.
