Mike Davies- A Brief History of Photography
Images generated by photography is taken for granted in today's colourful life, but took over two thousand years to develop into a reliable process. When in the 19th Century the early pioneers started, a Rochdale man was central to getting it established with Royal approval.
Mike Davis' talk, 'A brief history of photography' provides a background up to the beginning of the digital age.
