This fall, photographer and faculty member Jonathan Kline completed a three-year photographic history project with the Photographic Conservation Department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, involved recreating five different variants on the paper negative process, a method used by French and British photographers in the 1840s and ’50s and one that, with the advent of the film negative, few photographers are skilled in using today.
Visual arts faculty member Jonathan Kline’s exhibition at the University of Vermont showcased 17 prints produced using one of the many historic photographic processes that he’s dedicated his recent career to preserving.
