A Perfect Likeness focuses on identifying and caring for common 19th- and early 20th- century photographic processes and formats such as the daguerreotype, ambrotype, tintype and carte de visite. This exhibition has a broad appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds. A Perfect Likeness is sponsored by IHS and the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, N.Y.
