As we move into an increasingly digital world, it becomes more and more important to to preserve the delicate and ingenious processes that defined the early years of photography. Understanding historical processes is a key element to appreciating the work of the photographic masters, 19th century innovators who ranged from scientists to fine artists and everything in between. As paradoxical as it might sound, the future of photography truly does lie not only in the latest technological advances but also the artful and complex methods of our past. No one understands this fact better than photographer and educator Brenton Hamilton, who has throughout his career mined the processes of more than a century ago for new ways for contemporary artists to share their visions with the world.
