Photo historian Keith Davis presents a curator's perspective on some of the key aspects of 19th century photographs of the American West. He will discuss recent research and exhibition projects, the challenges and opportunities of developing a major collection, and matters of aethetics, individual style, and attribution.

Active as a photo historian and curator since 1978, he has published 35 books and catalogues, and curated about 100 exhibitions. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Michigan Photographic Historical Society in memory of Andee Seeger, co-founder and President Emeritus of MiPHS.
