    At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC....

    This is a show I really want to go and see. At last year's AIPAD show, I was deeply impressed by the salt prints and such made from paper negatives. This sounds like an impressive collection to visit. Check it out:

    I read the article, and I absolutely plan on visiting. I saw the French Daguerrotype show they mention in the article, and if the salt print show is anywhere near the quality of that exhibit, this will be a truly awesome experience. I'll try to organize a group field trip from DC to come up and see it - probably in early December. Anyone want to turn it into an APUG outing?

    That sounds like another good day trip for me and the girls. Let me know which weekend you choose.

    Sounds like a great exhibit!

    I'll join as well, if people are going; NYC is an easy train ride from where I am.

    Keep us posted.

    I've got to corral the folks down here in DC to organize carpool/train/etc, but I think we're going to come on the 8th. I'll send another email out to the group and see who wants to come along.

    Just saw the exhibit today. It's a big exhibit by MMA photography exhibit standards (they usually give short shrift, despite a huge photography collection).

    There is a very wide range of photos of varying quality. Some beautiful, some mundane. But it definitely gives you a wonderful feel for what can be done with salt prints, papaer negs, etc. They have a wonderful warmth and a beautiful softness.

    It also gave me a true appreciation various format sizes, knowing that they were all contact prints. Whole plate looks very exciting. Makes me want to get to work on fixing up mine. The (now) ULF formats are also well represented. WOW. Couldn't figure out their exact size, however.

    There's also a very nice sliding box camera on display with a contact printing frame that looks like it was used by Torquemada. Interesting. Not a design I would copy.
