The History of Photography

As 2014 draws to a close and 2015 is upon us it’s time to reflect on the events that brought us all here today.  Many artists at this time of year compile a Top 10 Photographs list as in introspective look at the past year.  For us, this reflection goes back much further, back to the very advent and creation of photography that almost everyone enjoys contemporarily today.  I was delighted to discover a 12 part video presentation created and hosted by George Eastman House that covers the history of photography, going back to the basic concept and early designs of a camera all the way to modern times where we find a digital camera on everyone’s phone.

So without further ado we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind support and encouragement over the course of 2014 and send you our very best wishes for a Happy New Year in 2015.  We hope you enjoy these featured videos and that they bring you a deeper understanding and appreciation of the history and events that make our modern practice and craft such a joy for so many.

Thanks once again for everything in 2014!  Best wishes and a Happy New Year to one and all from your friends, The Toads!!
