This course will concentrate on alternative photographic techniques including printing with Albumen, cyanotype and Van Dyke Brown. Students will generate many types of negatives including 4x5 negatives and larger, and they will research other processes used during the 19th and 20th century. These historical techniques were invented by of Henry Fox Talbot, Sir John Herschel as well as other notable photographers and scientists. Students will be encouraged to learn how to use these processes in combination with modern day processes and to push the envelope of what they can do to make multi-dimensional images as well as 2D work.
