Dr. Jeremy Rowe has collected, researched, and written about 19th and early 20th century photographs for over twenty-five years. He has written Arizona Photographers 1850 – 1920: A History and Directory and Arizona Real Photo Postcards: A History and Portfolio, and curated exhibitions with many regional museums. Dr. Rowe is currently working on a book on the history of stereoscopic photography in Arizona, including a checklist of over 6,000 stereo views of the state made before 1920. Jeremy has been conference co-chair for the National Stereoscopic Association, serves on the Board of the Daguerreian Society, has worked with the Library of Congress American Memory project, a digital historic photographic collection.
These images range from Daguerreotypes, Ambrotypes, tintypes, and albumen paper processes, from the cartes-de-visite and stereograph of the 1850s to the mounted cabinet and boudoir cards. Many of these images are unique and range from fine art prints to vernacular and found images, each with their own special magic.
