A unique historical “picture”, more like an online museum or exhibit, of photographic images of pre-cinema, optical toys, photography, early film, and what is known as “conjuring arts”, can be found at Early Visual Media: The History of Visual Media.
This is a unique opportunity to really peep into the past through a historical perspective of early vintage visual media and their usage. More than 70 web pages are filled with images from the past efforts to create photographic slide shows, videos, and early films. Fascinating.
Ghost images, stereoviews, nudes from the first attempts into nude photography, post cards, travel photography, fairground and freak shows, and some of the earliest photographs.
Walk back through time and the development of photography and cinema in this unique online exhibition.
