Free for CAC members

In the 19th century, the world's earliest photographers transformed a new technology into an art form with a primary subject: architecture. Unlike human subjects, buildings could be photographed for hours on end, without movement or complaint. Patrick Pyszka will examine this aspect of photography's history and explain why architecture continues to play an important role in photography today.
