This workshop-style course allows students to investigate new and personal directions using alternative photographic processes such as albumen, salted paper, gum bichromate, platinum/ palladium, and mordançage, leading to a fully realized portfolio, book, or other personal project. The course explores the creation of large-format digital negatives. Field trips include a visit to a Daguerreotype studio in New York City. Invention, experimentation, and risk will be strongly encouraged in this intermediate to advanced level class. Students will be required to provide their own chemistry and supplies for their final project.
