Join Geoffrey Batchen and students of the Victoria University of Wellington Art History honours programme as they provide an overview of their exhibition 'Apparitions'. Within the talk each presenter will discuss their insights into a selection of the daguerreotypes on show.

Apparitions: The photograph and its image
Curated by Geoffrey Batchen and his Honours students.
14 October – 17 December 2017.

'Apparitions' examines the dissemination of photographic images during photography’s earliest decades. Curated by Geoffrey Batchen and his 2017 Honours class, the show draws on both private and public collections (including Te Papa, the Turnbull Library and the Auckland Museum).

Apparitions displays rare daguerreotypes from England, France, Germany, and the United States, calotypes by photography’s English inventor William Henry Fox Talbot, and lithographs, wood engravings, steel engravings and other illustrations based on early photographs.

The focus is on the reproducibility and mobility of the photographic image. Apparitions is supported by the Ronald Woolf Memorial Endowment.

All welcome.
