Photography is not one medium; it is a technique with many processes. From photography’s inception with Fox Talbot’s paper negatives and Daguerre’s copper-plate Daguerreotypes, artists have always had a multitude of working methods to choose from to best express their ideas. This exhibition, drawn primarily from the Henry’s Monsen Collection of Photography, will consider a variety of photographic processes including carbon print, cyanotype, salted-paper print from a wet collodion negative, photogravure, and silver gelatin prints from cliché-verre negatives. Works by Hiroshi Sugimoto, Anna Atkins, Imogen Cunningham, Rondel Partridge, and others are featured.
