Photography Demonstration: Wet Collodion Process

In conjunction with the exhibition A Long Arc: Photography and the American South since 1845, artist Joni Sternbach will demonstrate the 19th century wet plate collodion process. Using both contemporary and period equipment, Sternbach, who has been working in this medium for over 20 years, will show and discuss the immediate (but slow) art of this historic photographic technology.

This program will be hosted in the Addison’s Visiting Artist Studio, at 24 School Street on Phillips Academy’s Abbot Campus. Part of the session will take place outdoors, weather permitting. Following the presentation, participants will be invited to walk or drive to the museum to explore the exhibition.

Space is limited and registration is required.
