The Metropolitan Museum of Art continues to receive significant additions to its collection as part of its year-long celebration of the museum's 150th anniversary. This impressive exhibit showcases highlights from a recent gift of over 700 19th-century photographs. On display are examples of a variety of early photographic techniques, some dating to 1839, including tintypes, cyanotypes, salted paper prints, and daguerreotypes. The exhibit features works by Lewis Carroll, Anna Atkins, and Hippolyte Bayard.
[Photography] is my one recreation and I think it should be done well
