About “A Man and His Cameras - The Photography of Ralph Eddy, from Glass Plates to 35mm Slides”

John Klatt, of Old Oregon Photos, explores how changing technology and the need to make a living influenced Ralph Eddy's Oregon photographs.

Oregon photographer, Ralph J. Eddy (1889-1970) had a remarkable 60-year career, in which he progressed from glass plates to acetate negatives to 35mm film and color slides. Eddy is best known for his popular series of postcards from the 1920s, images that he took while traveling around Oregon by car with his wife, documenting the wonders of the state. A career-spanning retrospective of Eddy's work is currently on display at the Museum of the Oregon Territory in Oregon City.

John Klatt, a West Linn resident, is a local historian and longtime admirer and collector of historic images from Oregon's past. For his company, Old Oregon Photos, he works with private collectors and institutions to reproduce classic views that combine historic interest and artistic merit.
