The Art of the American Snapshot 1888-1978

Companion to a 2007 exhibit that "traces the evolution of snapshots in America from 1888, when George Eastman introduced the first Kodak camera, to 1978." Flip through an online book to view snapshots, "photographs usually made by amateurs and intended to document personal history. ... Their casual, loose style has influenced fine art photographers as well as other artists." From the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

November 22, 1963. My 13th birthday.
