I visited the George Eastman House in early April on my first visit to Rochester, NY. This is obviously a great property with a fascinating history. George Eastman's contribution towards the development of the modern camera is unquestionable and so was his importance to the growth and progress of City of Rochester. The estate foundation which remains makes important contributions towards film preservation etc. All that is acknowledged. But what this beautiful property lacks are photographs ON DISPLAY for public consumption! A couple of small galleries are insufficient to a gallery of this potential importance. Unleash those vast photographic libraries in the vault and put them on display please!! There was plenty of "theater" space for example (closed to the public when I was there) and precious little exhibit space. George Eastman was the Bill Gates of the photographic world the display spaces should be equally important.
