One of the first photographs ever taken was a portrait of Dorothy Catherine Draper, taken in 1839. Photography has its roots from the principle of camera obscura, a natural phenomenon in which an image from the outside of the wall is projected inside through a small hole. Since then, people have been captivated with the camera can do. Right now, photography has been elevated to an all-new level with the introduction of photo editing programs and software. The Absence of the Origin of its Likeness by Arnold Koroshegyi and Laura Dutton tackles all this and more. Other speakers of the panel discussion include Cedric Bomford, Arnold Koroshegyi, Brandon Poole, Trudi Lynn Smith, and Laura Dutton. Lynda Gammon will serve as the moderator.
