Class meets Wednesday afternoons (1-4pm Eastern) from Sep 30th – Nov 4th

This 6-part workshop looks at contemporary photographers whose practice is influenced by 19th Century alternative processes. We’ll virtually visit 7 galleries located in 6 cities across the United States where dealers will provide an in-depth look at artists they represent shedding light on their work, process and artistic lineage. Pending availability, the photographers will join the conversation.

Both dealers and artists will discuss the current use of such alternative photographic processes as tintypes, daguerreotypes, photograms, scratched pigment prints, cyanotypes, pinhole cameraless prints, wet plate collodion, modern orotones and painted photography.

This hand imprint is a photogram on film which I scan and then make into a print.  There’s no question that the hand imprint process is borrowed from 19th Century scientists and spirit photographers.
