Last night we opened our newest exhibit, “Through the Camera Lens: Early Northfield Photography.” The new exhibit looks at photography in Northfield during the late 1800s. The exhibit looks at the works of Ira E. Sumner and Edward N. James.

Ten photos from the Sumner and James collections have been reproduced in large format for this exhibit, and a number of historic photographs, negatives, and equipment also will be on view. In addition, for a limited time visitors will be able to take their own photographs in front of a period backdrop replica in our recreated photographer’s studio.
The exhibit is sponsored by the Northfield News, KYMN Radio, and Bridgette Hallcock Photography. It will run through September.
