100 Years of Photography
A special exhibition of historical photographs in celebration of MMoA’s centennial. 100 Years of Photography features over 40 black and white images of the Mystic area throughout the early part of the twentieth century selected from the Mystic River Historical Society archives.
The photographs included are mainly from four local photographers: Everett A. Scholfield, a local photographer known primarily for his portraiture; George E. Tingley, a local photographer with an international reputation who promoted photography as an art; Mary Josephine Dickinson, a serious amateur photographer who captured many scenes of the area; and Paul P. Juley, a well-known fine arts photographer from New York City who visited Mystic in the summers.
100 Years of Photography was co-curated by Karin Forde Whittemore and Karen Barthelson. We wish to thank Dorothy Hanna and Elizabeth Boucher of the Mystic River Historical Society, and ABC PhotoLab for their invaluable help with this exhibit.
100 Years of Photography is sponsored by ABC PhotoLab and the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development.
