Daguerreotypes of the Enschedé family
The well-known family of printers from Haarlem, the Enschedés, own an extraordinary collection of family portraits, which are among the oldest photograph portraits in the Netherlands (1839-1855). The existence of nearly a hundred daguerreotypes of one family is exceptional. These photographs were subject to conservation so that they could be displayed for the first time.
In collaboration with the Enschedé family, Museum Joh. Enschedé and the Nederlands Fotomuseum, which will be presenting its daguerreobase.
