For all fans of early photography, a new exhibition at the Getty Museum investigates 7 artists whose work employs mid-19th century techniques that allow experiment and chance to become visible in an new way. As each artist incorporates these historic and natural processes into the medium, the viewer is able to see the work as something beyond ordinary representation of the world. Alongside the exhibited pieces are examples drawn from the museum’s own collection of experimental practices that were used during the twentieth century.
