[Banner from Proof exhibit]

Description: Photograph of one of the informational banners that was hung in the Special Collections room while the exhibit "Proof: The Byrd Williams Family Photography Archive" was housed there. It reads "Byrd Williams Photography; Byrd Photo; Byrd Williams III worked for Kodak and several other photography companies in addition to being involved in lens manufacturing prior to starting his business in Fort Worth. Through these jobs he gained the skill necessary to launch Byrd Photo which also included a portrait studio and photo lab. Studio work included work for a wide variety of clients including the city crime lab, architects, and magazines. Customers could have a photography painted over in oils, giving it the appearance of a painting - or oil paintings, based on these photographs.; Proof: Photographs from Four Generations of a Texas Family; Customers who came to Byrd Photo to have their portrait made would invariably be presented with a proof -- a photo print they could see before they placed their order for additional photographs. The Williams Collection is filled with photo proofs like these, but it's filled with proof of another kind as well-- proof of four lives spent in an unceasing attempt to capture our world, through the lens of a camera, as well as through the artifacts of their own lives. Over 190 images from the collection, as well as letters and other family mementos, are curated by Byrd Williams IV in the book Proof, available in fall 2016 through UNT Press." On the banner are also three black and white images, and a picture of a camera and old film.
