Photo Lab
cyanotypes and albumen prints

New Mexico Museum of Art
May 1, 2015 through Jul 26, 2015


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!
