Hunting Wildlife With Camera and Flashlight: the Night Photography of George Shiras
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 17, 2—5 p.m
George Shiras was a pioneer of wildlife photography. During the late 1800’s, a time when Alice Austen was also experimenting with photographic techniques, Shiras exchanged his hunting rifle for a camera and began using hunting techniques as a way to capture photographs of animals. In 1906 he became the first photographer to publish wildlife photographs in National Geographic Magazine and would subsequently donate his collection of glass plate negative to the society. He would use his photography as a tool for advocating the protection of wildlife in American parks. The otherworldly nocturnal photographs presented in the exhibition are on loan from the National Geographic Creative Archive.
Join us for members’ hour from 2—3 p.m., followed by the public opening from 3—5 p.m. Cake will be served in honor of Alice’s 152nd Birthday.
This Exhibition will be on view until June 9, 2018.
