‘The History of Photography as Seen Through the Spira Collection’ is a comprehensive look at the prehistory, history, and contemporary state of photography through the prism of one of the most important private collections of photographic equipment, images, books, and ephemera ever assembled. This richly illustrated book is a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of the human mind. S. F. Spira, an influential member of the international photography community and founder of Spiratone (until the mid-1980s America’s foremost supplier of innovative photographic accessories), has, with his wife Marilyn, collected more than twenty thousand individual objects relating to the history of photography – a collection of unusual substance and depth, including many rare items not duplicated amongst the holdings of any museum in the United States. The Spira Collection is remarkable in that it clearly illustrates the evolution of photographic technologies and the complex relationships between photography and other disciplines such as painting, history, and the sciences.
