“Cap­tur­ing a Shadow: Wil­liam Henry Fox Tal­bot and the Prom­ise of Pho­tog­ra­phy” is the sub­ject of a free public talk at 2 p.m. Satur­day by Larry J. Schaaf at Carnegie Mu­seum of Art. Mr. Schaaf is a pre­em­i­nent Tal­bot scholar, au­thor and di­rec­tor of the Wil­liam Henry Fox Tal­bot Cat­a­logue Raisonné.

The talk is given to com­ple­ment the ex­hi­bi­tion “Wil­liam Henry Fox Tal­bot and the Prom­ise of Pho­tog­ra­phy,” which com­prises more than 30 works by the pi­o­neer­ing vi­sion­ary and his cir­cle.

Among his achieve­ments was the in­ven­tion of pa­per-based pho­tog­ra­phy that dom­i­nated the field for most of the 19th and 20th cen­turies. Due to the frag­ile na­ture of the pho­to­graphs, ex­hi­bi­tions of his work are rare.

The ex­hi­bi­tion con­tin­ues through Feb. 11. Mu­seum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed­nes­day through Mon­day and un­til 8 p.m. Thurs­day. Ad­mis­sion is $19.95; se­niors $14.95; stu­dents and ages 3-18, $11.95; ages 2 and un­der and mem­bers, free; half-price after 3 p.m. week­days (in­cludes Carnegie Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral His­tory). In­for­ma­tion: cmoa.org or 412622-3131.
