2019 PHSNE Journal
2019 PHSNE Journal

The 2019 New England Journal of Photographic History, #177, features original research on one of the most iconic photographic portraits of all time: the unique daguerreotype of beloved poet Emily Dickinson, the only photographic image ever made of her. Two authors, John R. Felix and Susan Anderson set out to solve two separate mysteries: when the portrait was made, thus identifying Dickinson’s age at the time, and how it was that this daguerreotype seemed to vanish after Dickinson’s death in 1886 for nearly sixty years?

The research includes 1840s photographic technologies, fashion and social history, adultery, a family feud, secrets, and near-death revelations. The answers will surprise you. The 2019 Journal also includes a camera collector’s story of Irish good luck and timing, a life in photography, and a few of his favorite camera collecting finds. © 2019
