Captured Under Glass 

(Exhibit extended to early 2020)

In the digital era, it is difficult to imagine the time-consuming and painstaking effort it took to make images in the early years of photography. One of the earliest photographic processes was to capture a negative image through a camera on a chemical treated glass plate, which was then in turn used to develop a paper positive print. Glass plate negatives where sharper and better than previous methods and allowed for the photographer to create multiple copies from a single negative. This made them the predominate method of taking a photograph from 1860 to the early 1900s when it was surpassed by film. Come and see the stunning collection of glass plate negatives at the Woodstock Museum.
