Convocation of Latter Day Daguerreans (1976)


In the heyday of the daguerreotype revival of the 1970’s a gathering of contemporary daguerreotypists occurred on Staten Island, New York. Its aim was to share experiences of coming to terms with the process, to further the state of the art. A report of the meeting is linked here below, author unknown.
