Make your own film with this 19th century process!

In these workshops, participants will learn to make wet-plate collodion

ambrotypes (collodion positives on glass). Students will have the opportunity to

make self-portraits and still-lifes with a 19th century portrait

camera and lens. Following a demonstration, participants will be

guided through the process step-by-step, from cutting and cleaning

glass, to varnishing the final image.

Included will be instructions on mixing chemicals and troubleshooting,

plus a manual, "The Wet-Plate Process, A Working Guide," by Mark

Osterman. No equipment or experience is necessary for this class. --

This is a two-day class with two instructors.

About the instructors:

The Ostermans are considered modern masters of wet-plate collodion

photography. The recent artistic revival of the process is a direct

result of their work through exhibiting their

imagery, teaching workshops and extensive research and writings on the subject.

The Ostermans have traveled to Ireland, Spain, Italy, Japan and

throughout the US with the collodion process, making images with their

portable darkrooom.

They are represented by Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York City, US.

Their work has been highlighted in a number of solo exhibits and in

publications, including Paris Photo, and recent issues of Spiegel and

Geo. ZOOM magazine will include a feature on Mark's work in the

May-June 2007 issue.

Mark Osterman currently serves as Photographic Process Historian for

the Advanced Residency Program for Photograph Conservation at George

Eastman House, International Museum of Photography and Film in

Rochester, NY. He recently finished editing the 19th c. section of

the New Focal Encyclopedia of Photography (fourth edition).

France Scully Osterman is guest scholar at George Eastman House, and

teaches private tutorials and workshops in the couple's 19th century

skylight studio in Rochester, New York, US.

The couple began publishing a collodion manual in 1995, and published

The Collodion Journal from 1995 to 2002. Their work is featured in

several alternative and historic process books, Coming Into Focus,

2001, by John Barnier, Photography's Antiquarian Avant-Guard, 2002, by

Lyle Rexer, and The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, 2000,

by Christopher James.
