History of Photography Installations

  • Thumbnail Image: 

The George Eastman Museum's History of Photography Gallery is dedicated to rotating installations that trace photography’s historical path to the present through photographs and cameras from the collection. The photographs in the gallery change approximately three times a year (and the cameras once a year), continually refreshing the experience of visiting the museum and offering regular opportunities to view its treasures. Below are highlights from past installations of the History of Photography exhibitions. Visit Current Exhibitions to read about the latest rotation.
