Then and Now: Wright Brothers Photography

Primary tabs

Wright Brothers Flight #86 at Huffman Prairie by Dan ClearyThe Wright Brothers, men of many talents, were also accomplished photographers. At a time when taking photographs was not an easy process, they used photography to document the years of experimentation that led to the invention of flight. Join Dan Cleary for a discussion about his new series of photographs that integrate original Wright Brothers images with current images of the same locations. Included are photographs taken at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Huffman Prairie and other Dayton locations. Dan will have a limited number of signed photographs for sale at the presentation.
