Die Kollodium Nassplattentechnik gilt als eine der Konigsdisziplinen der Alternativen Fotografie und erlebt seit einigen Jahren weltweit ein grosses Revival. Die 1851 entwickelte Aufnahmetechnik machte die Fotografie erst zu einem Massenmedium. Am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts wurde die Nassplattentechnik als grasslichster und unzuverlassigster aller chemischen Fotoprozesse" verdammt. Mussten die Fotografen doch ihre Platten vor Ort beschichten, belichten und entwickeln. Heute besteht fur Fotografen der Reiz der Nassplattentechnik darin, sich mit ihren komplexen Prozessen auseinanderzusetzen, sich wieder mit Grossformatkameras und mobilen Dunkelkammern vor Ort zu begeben. Sie verfolgen das Ziel, die kreative, handwerkliche und kunstlerische Deutung der Fotografie als Geisteshaltung zu betonen. Dabei entstehen immer wieder charaktervolle Unikate. DAS KOLLODIUM ist das umfangreichste Handbuch zur Positivtechnik mit Nassplatten seit ihrer Erfindung vor mehr als 100 Jahren. Uber 400 Abbildungen, Illustrationen, Anleitungen und ausfuhrliche Informationen bieten einen umfangreichen, aktuellen Uberblick der modernen Nassplattenfotografie mit Kollodium. Ferner geben zehn Portrats von zeitgenossischen Kunstlern Einblick in ihr fotografisches Werk im Bereich der Kollodium Nassplatte."

Cyanotype is truly refreshing among the variety of books on historical and alternative photographic processes, since the author presents some old and almost forgotten techniques that are not seen in any recent book, and reveals some of the almost "secret," newer methods, such as production of bi-color cyanotype, double exposure techniques, etc... The book guides the reader with detailed descriptions and clear pictorial step-by-step instructions through the entire process of creating cyanotypes. At the beginning, we learn how to make chemicals, how to choose right paper, how to make digital negatives, how to expose the image, how to coat the paper with emulsion, and the like. In the following chapters are detailed descriptions on how to develop photographs, a large number of popular and some almost forgotten techniques of a simple one- and two-color toning of cyanotype, descriptions of making photograms, and a bit more challenging chapters of cyanotype printing on glass, stone and fabrics. The book does not lack practical examples of cyanotype for creating business cards, postcards, printed T-shirts and the like.

Photography Beyond Technique: Essays from F295 on the Informed Use of Alternative and Historical Photographic Processes

Author: Tom Persinger

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1317818059

Category: Photography

Page: 256

View: 655

Photography is not dying and has not died. It has been an ever-changing medium since its earliest days, and while near-obsession with the technology of the day may have defined photography over the course of its existence, photography is so much more than hardware and software. Photography is communication, whether chemical or digital, tangible or ephemeral in form. Photography Beyond Technique is a compelling selection of essays and images that reveal the thoughts and methods of some of today’s most exciting contemporary photographers. These artists employ alternative, historical, or handmade processes and techniques, and they share a comprehensive view of the medium: that the choice of photographic process is just as important as the selection of subjects. While other books concentrate solely on process, or theory, or artistic intent, none focus on photography in which these decisions are considered inseparable. These 20 essays, originally presented at the annual F295 symposium and seminar series, provide a thought-provoking read for anyone interested in photography as an art form and as a medium through which to view the world. Includes: "Looking Backward, Seeing Forward: Reframing Visual History" by Robert Hirsch "Mystery, Memory, and Narrative" by Martha Casanave "Finding Confidence: Combining Process with Purpose" by Mark Osterman "Photograph, Material, and Metaphor" by Jerry Spagnoli
