The Photo Lab features photographs from the collection made with two historic processes: cyanotypes and albumen prints. Both were popular in the nineteenth-century and examples are on view by early practitioners including Francis Frith, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Arthur Wesley Dow. These processes have been revived by contemporary artists -- such as Rita Dewitt, Betty Hahn, Robin Hill, Jennifer Schlesinger, Nancy Sutor, and Zoë Zimmerman – whose work is exhibited alongside the earlier masters. Find out about these colorful photographic process and check out a selection of historic cameras, a comment board, touch-screen videos, books, and more!
