Photographs from the 24th Daguerreian Society Annual Meeting and Trade Fair, November 8-11, 2012. Baltimore, MD.

Dr. Burns attended and had a book signing for his latest publication, “Mirror Mirror: The Burns Collection Daguerreotypes.” The trade fair was attended by collectors and curators as well as several Washington D.C. and Baltimore museum staff. The highlight of the meeting was Matt Isenburg’s lecture discussing the sale, packing and shipping (about 2 months!) of his noted collection to Toronto’s AMC (the Archive of Modern Conflict). Dr. Burns had a great time meeting with old friends and making new ones, and cannot wait for next year’s meeting.... in Paris!
