The Triumph of the Image - The Daguerreotype in Spain
On view from January 26th 2017 until April 23rd 2017, Centre Cultural La Nau, Sala Estudi General, University of Valencia.
The Triumph of the Image - The Daguerreotype in Spain aims to contextualize the birth of photography and the introduction of daguerreotypes in Spain. The exhibition includes a variety of objects that illustrate the rich history of daguerreotypes in Spain, where studies on the medium have not yet had the impact they deserve. A selection of original daguerreotypes, camera equipment, early manuals translated in Spanish and press releases among other things are on display, clustered in sections that offer the viewer an impressive overview of daguerreotypes in their cultural, social and scientific history.
