Hybrid Lecture: "Painting With Sunlight": Daguerrist S.L. Walker
Join us for a hybrid presentation by Kirk Moldoff on this early local photographer. Soon after the invention of the daguerreotype, Samuel Lyon Walker became one of America’s first practitioners of this new art. His love and devotion to his craft ran deep and he was continually experimenting, even to the detriment of his health. Known for his great artistic taste, Walker’s images were considered some of the finest ever made. Though mostly unknown today, he was devoted to recording and promoting nineteenth century Poughkeepsie and its people. The event will take place in-person at the PHM and live-streaming on Zoom. Kirk Moldoff is a medical illustrator and animator with a passion for industrial archaeology, local history and cast iron stoves. His research into the work and life of Poughkeepsie’s S.L. Walker stems from an interest in the 19th Century Hudson Valley as a nexus for art, innovation and invention.
