Digital to Daguerreotype at Carnegie Museum of Art on June 20

From the Carnegie Museum of Art:
Most photographs are of people—this has been true since the invention of photography. This exhibition of more than 70 works from the permanent collection and local private collections reveals how photographers from the past 160 years have explored the human subject, through an exceptional range of practices: from daguerreotypes, to black-and-white silver gelatin prints and color chromogenic prints, to digital inkjet prints. Included are rarely exhibited gems by masters of the medium—such as Julia Margaret Cameron, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, Robert Frank, and Garry Winogrand—alongside the work of little-known photographers.
I like how they say "alongside the work of little-known photographers", when I actually never heard of four out of the five "masters". Oh well, nonetheless, should be great work as you can see from these examples!

On a sidenote - I happened to see the Architecture show that opened on June 15th that I failed to mention. That also looks like something great to checkout while you're at CMoA!
