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.
