We have a $24.95, 48-minute documentary entitled "Captured Light: The
Invention of Still Photography"

The development of the still camera was one of the most significant
advances of the age of invention. From the Arabian camera obscura of a
thousand years ago to the Daguerrotype and George Eastman's innovations,
this is the remarkable story of the birth of photography.

Modern Marvels(tm) presents the strange saga of the birth of
photography, and the men at the heart of this tale. See how Frenchman
Joseph Nicephore Niepce was the first to succeed in photographing an
image in 1826, but his work was co-opted after his death by the artist
and showman Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre. The Daguerreotype became
popular, and Daguerre claimed the credit for himself, never recognizing
the work of his former partner. Trace the story of Englishman William
Henry Fox Talbot, who invented the negative-positive process that is
still used today. See how George Eastman brought photography to the
masses with his affordable, easy to use cameras.

With expert interviews and incredible images from the early days of
photography, including Matthew Brady's legendary images of the Civil
War, this is the illuminating story of CAPTURED LIGHT.

Subject: [Videolib] early hist of photo doc

Hi,
Any thoughts on video documentary that shows development of early
photography. I would love something that includes the people who worked
in Egypt, the middle east, etc. Also, the Belgian dance event was a
riot. I sent the link to the dance faculty who love to stage things in
town...
Thanks,
Kathy

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of
issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic
control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in
libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve
as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel
of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video
producers and distributors.
