Workshops on photographic processes

From: Pollmeier Klaus <kpollmeier>
Date: Wednesday, February 11, 1998
Next summer, interesting activities will be taking place in Dresden,
Germany. First, there will be a retrospective exhibition on the
German 19th-century photographer Hermann Krone, organized by the
Kupferstich-Kabinett (print collection) of the Staatlichen
Kunstsammlungen (State Art Collection) Dresden (13 June to 23
August). Krone worked in Dresden from 1843 to ca. 1900 as
photographer, researcher and teacher. Among other images, the
exhibition  will show more than 140  teaching panels (ca. 70x100 cm)
he used to explain most 19th century photographic processes. There
will be a catalogue with a German-English glossary.

Second, noted specialists for old photographic processes from the
U.S.A., England, Austria and Germany will come to Dresden. For two
or three days, they will introduce into the first photographic and
photomechanical processes and will work together with the
participants at the collotype printing studio of Druckhaus Dresden.

There will be  workshops on daguerreotype (Grant Romer, U.S.A.,
27-28. June), calotype (Richard Morris, England, 4-5. July) and the
wet collodion process (France Scully & Marc Osterman, U.S.A., 11-12.
July). Early photomechanical techniques like photolithography (Hans
Ulrich, 25-26. July) and collotype (Dietmar Guenther, 6-8. July) are
scheduled as well. Platinotype (Diether Muenzberg, 20-21. June) and
the "True Large Format" (Burkhard Kiegeland, 10-11. June) with
cameras cameras larger than 8 x 10" (20x25 cm) in size are
completing the program. These workshops might be very useful for
restorers and conservators to improve their understanding of
historic photographic and photomechanical work.

The English-speaking teachers will be assisted by a German
translator. The participation fee is 680,00 DEM per workshop.

Third, a symposium "Photographie und Apparatur" will take place from
12-14. June, discussing the relation image vs. apparatus in 19th
century photography.
