    View rare prints from the first years of photography and early travel photographs preserved as souvenirs. A Gift of Light features selections from an important collection of 19th-century European photographs amassed by renowned cellist and collector Janos Scholz. Over several years, Scholz donated more than 5,000 photographs to the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame, which organized this traveling exhibition. See works by pioneering photographers such as William Henry Fox Talbot, Gustave LeGray, Julia Margaret Cameron and Roger Fenton. The exhibition features landscapes, portraits and still life subjects captured on film, in many cases, for the first time.
