Since its invention in 1839, the unique power of photography has been utilized to record the physical world and appearances. MoPA’s Education Department has drawn from MoPA’s extensive permanent collection to present an evolution of portraiture photography throughout history and through various processes.

This exhibition includes photographic works ranging in date from the mid-19th to the early 21st centuries, seen through works from innovators of the medium, both famous and unknown, including William Henry Fox Talbot, Arnold Newman and Loretta Lux.
