Lewes History Group talk: Edward Reeves: development of a business and technology – Monday 13 May 2019, 7:00 for 7:30pm

Tom Reeves: Edward Reeves and the Evolution of Photography – the development of a business and technology

In this talk Tom Reeves will cover the development of his family’s photographic business that goes back to the 1850s.

Plus, using a Victorian glass-plate camera, he will demonstrate how a picture was created in the late 19th century, and how it took considerable skill to produce what now appear to be quite mundane images.

To finish there will be an update on the Reeves Archiving Project.
