2021 PHSNE Journal

By PHSNE - Photographic Historical Society of New England

42 pages, perfect-bound

The 2021 New England Journal of Photographic History, #179, contains two fascinating articles. The first details the development of an engineering marvel, the camera used in the once highly classified Hexagon spy satellite program. Author Phillip Pressel describes how he and his team designed and built the powerful satellite camera that was used to keep an eye on our “enemies” during the 1970s and early 1980s. The article also contains an array of satellite images of the Soviet Union and North Korea taken during the Cold War period. The Journal also includes an article by Lee McIntyre and Chris Culy about Miss C. Smith, a woman photographer who left her job working in the textile mills of New England, opened her first photographic studio in 1877 at age 48, and enjoyed a very successful career in studio photography for the next 29 years. The article touches on the careers of other 19th century New England women photographers and includes many samples of Miss Smith’s fine studio work.
