From Aristotle to the iPhone – Photographys’ March to the Future

Brownie Camera

     Join us at McKissick Museum on November 1, 2022, at 5:30 pm for a talk by Dr. Robert W. Lisle on the evolution of the camera and photography as an art.

     A family medicine doctor in Bluffton, SC affiliated with Beaufort Memorial Hospital, Dr. Lisle’s interest in photography was sparked by the three-dollar purchase of a Kodak Brownie Hawk camera (pictured) in the 1970s. Since then, he has assembled a remarkable teaching collection of photographic equipment that has been displayed at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA. Dr. Lisle will reflect on what his research on the history of the camera and of photography suggests about the ways science and technology in this arena have changed our ways of thinking and being.     This program is free and open to the public.
