Visit the PMA’s Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Study Room on January 26th.

If you were intrigued by the work you saw in ‘Making Contact’ – or if you’re simply curious about historic photographic processes – join The Halide Project on Tuesday, January 26th from 10 AM – 12 PM as we visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Study Room to view historic photographs from the Museum’s collection.

The first of a series, this visit will focus on early processes, such as salt printing, Daguerreotypes, cyanotype, and more.

Although this event is free, because space is limited, reservations are required. Please RSVP by Friday, January 22nd to reserve your space by clicking here.
