FROM 1822 UNTIL TODAY THE TECHNOLOGY OF PHOTOGRAPHY

This lecture is for anyone interested in science and photography.


The extraordinary technological progress in photography that has occurred in the last 184 years will be reviewed. Tony Kaye will describe the black and white and the colour negative positive process, and introduce the concept of colour management in modern digital systems. He will challenge the audience to reflect on the question "What has changed in 184 years of photography, a little or a lot ? Are the changes fundamental or just technology substitution ?"

Tony’s interest in photography and imaging started at the age of 11 with his parent's Kodak Brownie 127 camera. His first degree was in physics and his doctorate was in astronomy, where he specialised in detecting faint light using photographic materials and photographic materials used in conjunction with image intensifiers. He joined Kodak in 1978 directly from university and has specialised in the negative positive process throughout his career. Recently his interests have broadened to include both digital capture and digitisation of film via scanning.
