A Brief Pre-History of Photography

January 4, 2015

I’m looking forward to building Rewild Photography into a destination for sharing stories about re-vitalizing photography’s roots, and can think of no better place to start than this really cool video primer from George Eastman House on the history of imaging techniques before photography existed:

I think it’s fascinating to see how for centuries we’ve been harnessing light as the most authentic means of creating images of people and scenery. The camera obscura and other techniques described in the video pre-date anything that would be officially termed photography, but they remain at the core of the art and craft of photography to this day.
