Until January 29, the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton is presenting an exhibition of 19th-century French photographs organized by the National Gallery of Canada. Featuring prints made with early photographic techniques like daguerreotypes, salted paper, albumen silver and photogravure, this exhibition shows the exploration of the use of the newly-invented medium of photography in France. The collection includes images by some of the major ­photographers working in France during that era, including Eugène Atget, Edouard Baldus, Maxime Du Camp, J.B. Greene, Gustave Le Gray, Charles Marville, F.J. Moulin, Nadar, Auguste Salzmann and Félix Teynard, among others.
