19th Century New Jersey Women Photographers: Exceptional Artists in a Mostly Male Profession

January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

On January 27, 2022, Garey Saretzky will discuss female photographers of the 19th century at 6:30pm. In the 19th century, of more than 3,000 professional photographers in New Jersey, only about 3% were women. Like their male colleagues, they provided their communities with daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, cabinet cards, and other types of photographs. In this slide program, the successful careers of selected women pioneer photographers active in New Jersey will be highlighted, including Charlotte Prosch in Newark, Jessie Carhart in Phillipsburg, Hannah Flanagin in Woodstown, and the partners Amelia Van Buren & Eva Watson in Atlantic City.

This program is a virtual event held through Zoom. This program is free for members; $10 for nonmembers. Pre-registration is required. Funding has been made possible in part by funds from Morris Arts through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/ Department of State, a partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
