I am a curatorial assistant in the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Department of Photographs where I research and write about the collection. I also play detective, sleuthing out the lives photographs lived before they arrived at the Getty. In my down time I am working on a historic novel about Hippolyte Bayard and the earliest days of photography in 1830s Paris.
