Workshop - 1839: Processes of Daguerre, Talbot, and Bayard

George Eastman House launched a series of photography workshops this year, including some related to early photographic processes that are taught by process historian Mark Osterman. The next workshop is 1839: Processes of Daguerre, Talbot, and Bayard, from July 19-22 at the George Eastman House in Rochester, N.Y. This four-day workshop is limited to 10 participants and is suitable for curators, archivists, conservators, historians, and anyone else interested in the early history of photography. Participants will have "the rare opportunity to recreate a mercury-developed daguerreotype [and] Talbot’s photogenic drawings."
