Since the invention of photography in 1839, photographers have often had one foot in the lab and the other in the studio, combining the science of image-making with the aesthetics of art-making. CHEM 101: The Science of Photography celebrates both sides of the photographic process. Featured works by contemporary photographers including Binh Dahn and Ellen Carey reflect their experimentation with traditional chemical processes and innovative approaches to the printed image, laying bare the chemical origins of their medium to offer images that are both visually striking and stunningly scientific.
