Did you know Harvard holds nearly 10 million photographs across its libraries, museums, and archives? Harvard collections span the lifetime of photography, documenting the evolution of the medium. Come learn more about it in a series of two workshops on photographs. Sign up for one or both as you wish!

Join Elena Bulat and Amanda Maloney from Weissman Preservation Center in a session on identification basics of some of the major photographic processes found in our collections. This workshop will cover daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, salted paper prints, albumen prints, collodion prints, and gelatin silver prints. Get tips and hands on experience identifying different types of photographs.

Session led by:
