For the month of October, Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery will feature 'Through Her Lens: Women Photographers Of Mid-Coast Maine, 1895-1925,' an exhibition loaned by the Penobscot Marine Museum. Since photography’s inception in 1839, women have been involved in the making of images. Constance Fox Talbot experimented with photography even as her husband William Fox Talbot was perfecting his process, the calotype, which generated the world’s first photographic negative in 1841. A handful of women began opening daguerreotype studios in Europe and the United States in the early 1840s, and were among the first professionals in this technical field at a time when most women either didn’t work outside the home, or were employed as domestic servants, schoolteachers, nurses, or laborers in the textile industry.
