The Albumen Print (PHO4114.02)

Jonathan Kline

In this 7-week session, students will explore the most widely used process of making photographic prints in the 19th century, the albumen process. Ideally suited for contact printing either glass or paper negatives in sunlight, the albumen print has a glossy surface and rich tonal scale that became very popular for photographers exhibiting their work in the 19th century. Students will be expected to complete a portfolio of carefully made albumen prints by the end of the class.
