View from the Window at Le Gras is the earliest surviving photograph produced by the father of photography, Nicéphore Niépce. circa 1826. This historic jewel is now in the permanent collection of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, Austin. Because of the light sensitive nature of the print, it is presented in a custom made darkly lit booth, to be viewed by a single person at a time. PDNB Gallery will exhibit what we believe is the MOST IMPORTANT photograph made since the famous Niépce photograph. The significance of this photograph cannot be measured or valued. Over 150 years have passed since the invention, and there has been no other photographic print produced that is as important. Because this photograph is rare and cannot be presented in normal gallery lighting, the work of art will be presented inside a curtained area. Opening reception Aug. 9th from 5 – 8 pm. PDNB Gallery will be closed Aug.12th – 16th.
