Framed: Identity and the Photographic Portrait

Portraiture has been a part of photographic representation as early the announcement of photography’s invention in the 1830s. With the rise of the profession of photography and establishment of portrait studios by John Plumbe and Albert Sands Southworth and Josiah Hawes (known as “Southworth and Hawes”) in the 1840s, Boston, in particular, distinguished itself as a leader in the field of studio portraiture. Though not limited to artists practicing in Boston, Framed returns to the popular subject of portraiture and features contemporary photographic portraits.
