This 7 week course explores the various methods that 19th century photographers used to create negatives using paper.  We will be focusing on replicating British and French processes that were used by the first generation of photographic practitioners, from roughly 1840-1860, including  William Henry Fox Talbot, Gustave Le Gray, and Amelie & Jacques-Michel Guilot-Saguez.  We will also explore the paper negative holdings in the archives of nearby museums.

Students will use an 8×10 inch camera to replicate the process and complete a portfolio of their own paper negatives by the end of the first seven weeks.

Corequisite: Taking the History of Photography/19th Century is strongly suggested.
