CANCELLED! D.E. Geraths: Historical Photographer/Living Historian


Capturing Time – The Art of Historical Photography


Do to a family emergency D.E. Geraths will not be able to present on Nov. 15th. We are working on a reschedule for some point next year.

Historical Photography is the recreation of the past through the lens of a camera. Using only historically accurate photographic techniques, processes and equipment and utilizing historical venues, living historians and models, a photographer may recreate the past in stunning detail and realism. D.E. Geraths does just that and in this talk he will describe the beginnings of this passion, the process in which he creates these images and the reasons for his obsession.  He will be displaying some of the 19th and early 20th Century photographic equipment that he uses, giving a slide presentation of his work and answering your questions.

D.E. Geraths is an Oregon based Photographer, specializing in 19th and early 20th Century Photography and Photographic Processes. He is an avid historian of the American Western Frontier and works as a freelance Museum Exhibit Consultant and Artist, focused on Artifact Restoration, Preservation and Replication.  He has worked for museums throughout the country and has specialized in Historical Photography for 15+ Years.
