Colosseum, Rome, 1870s. Paolo Salviati (?) – Ryerson Image Centre Photographs Collection
Photographic Expeditions in the 19th Century
Steven Evans – photographer, collector and specialist in 19th century photography has emerged as an important player internationally on the collecting scene and in the photography marketplace. His holdings include works by many significant figures in 19th and early 20th century photography, and he has discovered and brought long lost practitioners back into the light. Steven is the generous donor of a range of 19th century albumen prints to the RIC Collection by figures important in the history of photography. Using these original prints he will speak about their place in the revolution in visual culture delivered by photography in the decades after the announcement of its invention in 1839. Please join us in the Research Centre for this presentation.

I’m hoping that you can forward this link and request to your students.
For 2013, the call for submissions for the RIC Student Gallery is to FCAD students alone. The link provides background on the student gallery, RIC, as well as a link to the downloadable PDF submission form.
So, we’d love to see some of our best work on show! Please encourage your students to submit to this inaugural year of exhibitions at RIC.
