The Symposium The Daguerreian Society 19th Century Photography Symposium and Fair returns to New York City for our 30th Annual event. This year the symposium will be held at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel September 13 – 16th. The events begin with tours on Wednesday and Thursday.  Formal events begin with the opening reception Thursday evening. Friday is filled with presentations about 19th century photography and early photographic processes. Friday evening is typically room hopping nights, when many dealers open their rooms for symposium attendees.  The trade show opens Saturday morning with top dealers and collectors offering over 70 tables of historic photographs and related materials. This year a tintype portrait studio will offer attendees the opportunity to have mono and stereo portraits taken at the event. Symposium registration entitles attendees to early entry to the trade show, while others can enter as early buyers for $50.   Saturday evening is a second reception, silent auction, and preview of the annual live auction of photographica before a fabulous Saturday evening all-you-can-eat Buffet Banquet evening banquet. After the banquet the annual live and online auction of fine photographica provides an opportunity for collectors, dealers, and curators to purchase exceptional images while helping generate revenue for the Society. Sunday morning the Daguerreian Society hosts its annual business meeting to share in formation and interact with our members. After the meeting, attendees can take advantage of additional tours and the rich portfolio of museums, exhibitions and events in New York City.
