The Big Picture: A Selection of Cirkut Photographs from the Burgert Brothers
The Big Picture: A Selection of Cirkut Photographs from the Burgert Brothers Collection features rarely-seen panoramic photos and other images from the Burgert Brothers Photographic Collection. Cirkut prints ― an early form of panoramic photography ― form the heart of the History Center’s exhibition.
The History Center’s exhibition also includes a slideshow by local photographer Bryan Weinstein, who “re-photographed” locations where several original Burgert Brothers photos were taken. His methodical recreations of the historic photographs offer a striking before-and-after effect, underscoring how much the places have changed or, in some cases, remained almost exactly the same.
The exhibition also includes ledgers, glass-plate negatives, and other ephemera from the Burgert Brothers Studio.
The Big Picture: A Selection of Cirkut Photographs from the Burgert Brothers Collection is on exhibit at the Tampa Bay History Center through July 15.
