Focus on the Process: The Art, History, and Science of Photographic Printing

Supported in part by grants from Lake Region Arts Council and The Arts Partnership, Dr. Ken Andersen and intern Louis Zurn demonstrate the fascinating history of photography by showcasing a collection of prints using materials, techniques, and technologies spanning centuries and global cultures.

Juxtaposing Andersen’s stunning images with both photographs and narratives documenting and describing their creation (from mixing egg albumen with silver nitrate to the technology of carbon transfer printing), we bring you the art, history, and science of photographic printing.
