Historic Photo Processes Forum

Artboard 1

Saturday, June 15, 2019,
11am - 1pm


Drop-in to uncover the history and practice of photography preservation every third Saturday of the month.

The forum is a resource for photographers, collectors, and conservators to study the history and practice of alternative (non-inkjet) photographic image making.

Enjoy special guest presentations as well as a round-table type format which encourages participants to share their latest works and discoveries.

History of the HPPF

Founded and moderated by color-carbon printmaker Charles Berger, the Historic Photo Processes Forum, is now in its third year at the MAH.

Featured Techniques

Albumen, carbon, platinum, and other vintage techniques are used today not only for their nostalgic aesthetic but also because they represent the pinnacle of photographic printmaking – unrivaled for image quality and stability.

By combing “obsolete” wet-processes with sophistical digital imaging tools, contemporary artist-photographers are creating expressive and technically innovative hand made photographs.
