"TEN PICTURES: A HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY" A LECTURE BY PETER HAY HALPERT
The ancient Greeks first discovered the principles of the camera obscura sometime between the IV and V centuries B.C. but photography as we know it was invented in the XIX century. The first “photograph” was taken by Joseph Niepce in 1814, however, it wasn’t until 1839, when Louis Daguerre and William Henry Fox Talbot simultaneously released completely different processes for capturing and holding an image, that we entered the age of photography.
Today, photography is a language that everybody speaks. We walk around with cameras in our pockets, in the form of our smartphones. Photography is the medium of our times; we instinctively understand and relate to photographic images, while contemporary paintings often require some kind of explanation and context.
How did we get to this point in less than 200 years?

Email Sandy at SRivera@vailgov.com for an invitation to the monthly Books ‘n’ Bites.
Every morning, Nuri the beekeeper rises early to hear the call to prayer before driving to his hives in the countryside. On weekends, his wife Afra, a gifted artist, sells her paintings at the open-air market in the square. They live simply, rich in family and friends, in the hills of the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo — until the unthinkable happens. When all they love is destroyed by war, Nuri knows they have no choice except to leave their home. But escaping Syria will be no easy task: Afra has lost her sight, leaving Nuri to navigate her grief as well as a perilous journey toward an uncertain future in Britain. Moving, intimate, and beautifully written, this is a story for our times: It reminds us that our lives can be upended instantly — and brings a journey in faraway lands close to home, never to be forgotten.
