Paper Portrait Sessions

Modern photography was born of a combination of three discoveries: the camera obscura, the lens, and a light-sensitized substrate. Using a camera obscura and a modern variation of a nineteenth-century positive/negative process, Ross den Otter will create large-format negatives of the public at his open studio.

William Henry Fox Talbot perfected his positive/negative process in 1940. His camera negatives were made on paper sensitized with silver chloride. This process allowed the creation of multiple copies as the camera negative could be printed with another sensitized sheet of paper and repeated. The history of silver based printing can be traced back 165 years to this foundation.

Open to the public from 12:00pm to 4:00pm on a first-come, first-served basis.
