The French! No one would dispute they are masters at modern philosophy. And no one would dispute they desire to preserve their language, aggressively. Less known is their early passion of photography in the 1800's, preserved today.

That is the subject of a museum talk this afternoon.

Portland Art Museum curator of photography Julia Dolan opines on The Mirror with a Memory: 19th-Century French Photography from Daguerre to Atget.
