        Thomas Eakins | First Use of Camera 1881

        Eakins takes his first photographs in 1880 of his family at home and at the beach. In 1881, he buys his first camera, made by the American Optical Company, and turns it to subjects for use in his paintings. Throughout America, amateur photography is exploding as portable, inexpensive cameras and development processes are made available to the general public.
