A Brief Photographic History: Processes

Below are six short, but informative videos by The George Eastman House in Rochester, NY on various  processes in photographic history beginning in 1814-1815. It covers the following processes and their place in the history and evolution of image making: the Daguerreotype, the Collodian Process, the Albumen Print, the Woodbury Type, the Platinum Print, and the most widely used Gelatin Silver Print.

From The George Eastman House International website:

George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, the world’s oldest photography museum and one of the world’s oldest film archives, opened to the public in 1949 as an independent, non-profit museum. It combines the world’s leading collections of photography and film with the stately pleasures of the landmark Colonial Revival mansion and gardens that George Eastman called home from 1905 to 1932. The Museum is a National Historic Landmark. Mr. Eastman, the founder of Eastman Kodak Company, is heralded as the father of modern photography and motion picture film.

I am very grateful for all of these historical contributions!

I find history fascinating – enjoy!  :)
