2018 PHSNE Journal

The 2018 New England Journal of Photographic History, #176, features Simon Wing, a New England photographer, entrepreneur, and one-time presidential candidate, his invention, the Wing Multiplying Camera, and the life of his daughter, Anna Wing.

“Simon Wing’s Photographic Collection Comes Home,” by Randel Mott-Cobb, is a story about hidden cameras, images, and artifacts re-discovered and now on display in a new museum. “The Marvelous Multiplying Camera,” by Peter and Barbara Schultz, offers a history of Wing’s signature invention for speeding the production of tintype photographs.

“It’s Complicated: A History of the Towne, Ober, and Towne & Whitney Studios,” by John Felix, traces the life of photographer Anna Wing Towne, Simon’s daughter, along with her husband, Willis Towne, his other wife, Clara Ober Towne, Anna’s business partner, Alma Whitney, and the intrepid cyclist, Mrs. Kapchowsky, aka Annie Londonderry. It really is complicated.
