52:320TXP - Week 13 - George Eastman House

Still in Rochester for Week 13 and continuing with the Kodak Love! Again we have the guest camera from Andrew being featured here in Week 13! The George Eastman House, now a museum dedicated to the preservation of the art of photography. Not only can you see the images, but you can also see the iconic cameras that created them. The famous photo of US Marine raising the Stars and Strips on Iwo Jima, you can see the original print at the GEH and the Speed Graphic used to create the image. Plus you can also tour the home of the man that brought Photography to the people. Sadly I arrived too late to actually do the tour (although I have been through the home before). But the Eastman House is so much more than just a museum. They are an archive, their vaults are filled with historic photos and films, all sent to the Eastman House often for restoration and preservation. They also offer courses on training the next generation of preservationists and also courses on historic processes. If you ever find yourself in Rochester with some free time, I highly recommend visiting! You can find out more on their website!
