New JCHS exhibit to feature work from high school photographers

Posted

The Jefferson County Historical Society’s newest exhibit, “Now & Then,” will feature the photography work of Port Townsend High School students, displaying a comparative look at historic photographs taken in Port Townsend throughout its history.

During the school year, students from Port Townsend High teacher David Egeler’s Photography and Advanced Media class selected images from the historical society’s archives, found the exact location where the photos were taken and worked to recreate the exact framing and angle of view in the present day.

The resulting photo essays present a look at the ongoing evolution of Port Townsend, and compare and contrast the stark differences or striking similarities of Port Townsend throughout the decades or centuries.

“Now & Then” will be on display at the historical society’s new Museum of Art and History until June 26.
