For her series “The Other Half of the Sky,” photographer Lili Almog focused on women belonging to ethnic and religious subcultures in rural China. Almog writes of this project, “I wanted to present intimate portraits of ‘unseen women’—the culture of minority women—as an expression of the dignity and heroism of the private self reflected through time and culture.” See works by Almog in our #CrossingLines exhibition. #LiliAlmog #HarvardArtMuseums #NowOnView #Hcontemporary — Lili Almog, “Muslim Teacher (Imam),” 2009.

Boston 1842, the old Old City Hall was built in 1810 with Charles Bulfinch architect. It was torn down in 1863 for the present Old City Hall. This photograph was taken the very year that the callotype process was announced to the American Public in an article published in Boston. The photographer was a brilliant 15 year old boy named Josiah Parsons Cooke. He later became head of Chemistry at Harvard and is credited with setting up the first chemistry labs in the US and for pioneering work on the periodic table (which hadn’t yet been developed). The calotype process was a paper contact process invented by Henry Fox Talbot. He was English and received the Rumford Medal for his work. The Rumford Medal has been awarded by the Royal Academy since 1800 and is one of the oldest scientific awards. It is named for the pioneering Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford. He was born in Woburn Massachusetts, spent much of his youth in Salem before the Revolution and then went to Germany where he was made a Count for his brilliant scientific experiments involving heat (the Rumford comes from Rumford, New Hampshire). Benjamin Thompson is buried in Paris. His Salem house is preserved and is located on Essex Street, next to the Witch House. #earlyphotography #callotype #williamhenryfoxtalbot #harvardartmuseums #harvard #oldcityhallboston #oldcityhall #rumfordprize #royalacademy #countrumford #salem #salemma #salemhistory

How stunning is Emily? I love this image of her in the final moments before she saw Alex. • Ladies, when you're planning your timeline for your wedding, make sure to leave 30 full minutes for that final "putting on your dress" phase of getting ready. Plan for 45 minutes if your dress has a full back of buttons or complicated skirting that you'll need to navigate. You may think it's just a quick zipper but you'll have shoes and jewelry and a veil and all those pieces take time! Plus, it's an emotional time in the final moments before you head to see your soulmate and being able to soak up those moments and emotions is so important. And bonus - they lead to iconic and authentic images like this. So give yourself plenty of time! • @harvardartmuseums @enaurabridal @petalblushbeauty @thenewburyboston
