When the albumen print process was perfected in 1850, for the first time in photographic history there was a means of inexpensively producing multiple paper-based images from a single negative. Albumen then became the dominant method of creating photographic positives from 1855 to the turn of the 20th century, when it was eventually replaced with silver gelatin. Prints on albumen produce a wonderful tonal range, with a unique sheen of a pearl essence that no other medium can achieve.

In this intensive, hands-on introduction to the medium, Jennifer discusses the history and process of albumen printing and demonstrates how to make albumen, as well as how to coat paper with albumen, sensitize paper with silver nitrate, and print and tone with selenium. We also explore troubleshooting in regards to paper, negatives, and chemical issues.

Participants of all levels are welcome, but those with an understanding of alternative processes may achieve a greater understanding of the technicalities involved. Regardless of prior experience, you walk away with an albumen print and the know-how to achieve the best results in the medium—as well as the confidence to practice that knowledge independently.

Tuition for this Intensive includes two lunches.
