WHAT IS A PHOTOGRAPH?
What is a Photograph? describes and includes many of the most common photographic processes (daguerreotypes, salted paper prints, gelatin silver prints, and inkjet prints), but it also includes objects, artifacts, and practices that have typically been considered marginal to the history of photography (reproductions of photographs in ink, negatives, camera-less photographs, cartes-de-visite, color processes, and even a piece of jewelry). These disparate works invite you to consider what-if anything-links them together within the history of photography.
What is a Photograph? will be on view from April 20 to August 19, 2012 in the Templeman Galleries.
