The 2016 New England Journal of Photographic History, #174, is themed around the art and practice of portraiture. Contents: Two Sides of 19th-Century Photography, how studio photographers strove to differentiate themselves on both the fronts and backs of their photos; The Creation of the Polaroid Portrait Land Camera – The Big Shot – and how Andy Warhol made it famous; The Dunshees, the seven-decade saga of a Vermont family of itinerant 19th-century photographers; The Historic E.B. Luce Collection, a behind-the-scenes look at the acquisition, conservation, preservation and presentation of Worcester Historical Museum’s 75,000-image Luce Collection – an in-depth portrait of Worcester, MA; plus selected potato portraits and a brief history of selfies.
