Lecture: Prescott’s Pioneering Photographers POSTPONED

May 21 at 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Update 5/18/22: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this lecture will be postponed to a future date, which will be announced soon. Thank you for your patience!

During the late 1800s a specialized group of frontiersmen began arriving in the Southwest. They were part artist, part technician and part chemist—these were the frontier photographers! They came with their cameras, tripods, photo chemicals and wagons to document the landscape, Native Americans and their cultures, prehistoric ruins, mines, freighters, businesses and of course the burgeoning cities and pioneering townspeople. Learn the history of Prescott’s pioneering photographers and their place in the SHM Archives at this special presentation with librarian-archivist Brenda Taylor.

Brenda Taylor is currently the Sharlot Hall Museum Research Center Manager and Librarian-Archivist. Since she began her tenure at the Museum in 2011, she has been reorganizing the SHM Archives for the 21st century. Photography is Brenda’s first love and being in a position that allows her to learn about Prescott’s early-day photographers and see their amazing historic images daily is truly a marvel.

The presentation will be held in the Education Center Auditorium at the Sharlot Hall Museum. Admission is free but reservations are required (RSVP below). Ticketholders: please enter through McCormick Street gate at event.
