Albumen with Morgan Post

Presented by Penumbra Foundation


In 1850, Frenchman, Louis-Desiré Blanquart-Evrard (1802-1872), invented the albumen print. This process involved immersing a sheet of paper in an egg and salt wash, brushing the paper with silver nitrate for light sensitivity, and exposing the coated paper to sunlight for minutes or even hours. The paper was then toned to produce a developed image with a warm brown cast and yellow and cream highlights. The warm brownish hue, a result of the egg emulsion, is a distinguishing earmark of an albumen print. In this workshop, students will learn the Albumen process using these same techniques. Students will learn how to mix chemistry for Albumen, coat paper, sensitize paper, and how to tone prints. The class will have the advantage of using UV lights for faster exposures as well as digital negatives for contact printing, which students should bring.
