Penobscot Marine Museum has four major exhibitions of historic photography under the umbrella title Exploring the Magic of Photography: Painting with Light. The campus is filled with hands-on activities: museum visitors will be able to walk into a huge camera, step inside an historic darkroom, watch a tintype being made, make a cyanotype photograph, make a pin-hole camera, take a photograph with a pin-hole camera, take photographs of themselves standing beside images of people from the 1880s, add their own photographs to an online museum exhibit, and add their selfies to the museum’s “Wall of Selfies”.

Audio clips of interviews, biographies, and commentaries by historians, curators and professional photographers will be available to visitors on their mobile devices through QR codes, and on tablets in the exhibits.

The Four Exhibits Include:

Through Her Lens: Women Photographers of Mid-Coast Maine, 1890-1920
Twenty Best
Evolution of the Photographic Snapshot: 1888-2015
The Carters and the Lukes – Selections from the Red Boutilier Collection

Exploring the Magic of Photography: Painting with Light runs through October 18, 2015.
