Local Exposures: Cincinnati Daguerreotypes
The earliest form of photography, daguerreotypes are exquisitely detailed, one-of-a-kind images created on a mirror-like silver surface. In the mid-19th century, Cincinnati was home to dozens of daguerreotype studios. This exhibition features ten daguerreotypes that highlight prominent Cincinnati studios, compelling Cincinnati subjects, and the wealth of local collections. Among the earliest views of Cincinnati, a street scene provides a snapshot of the growing metropolis.
