episode 61: W.S. Lively and the Southern School of Photography


In this episode of the Fine Art Photography Podcast, we discuss photographer W.S. Lively, who started the second photography school ever in the United States -- and he did it in a small Tennessee town -- and it was successful! But he gained notoriety for making three 60-inch prints from glass-plate negatives - the first time it had ever been done.
