Lost and Found: Rediscovering Early Photographic Processes


This website is the virtual world of the exhibition Lost & Found: Rediscovering Early Photographic Processes held in the Fisher Gallery at the University of Southern California.

Curated by four graduate students in the Art History department at USC, the exhibition is open from March 7 through April 21, 2001.

Lost & Found presents the earliest photography of the daguerreotype, ambrotype and tintype from nineteenth-century America. Each portrait reveals a moment of life of people who were captured in a tiny image and forgotten for over hundred years.

These early photographic processes are being rediscovered by the hands of contemporary artists. Chuck Close, Stephen Berkman, Jayne Hinds Bidaut, and Luis Gonzalez Palma are featured in Lost & Found as contemporary artists who commemorate these early techniques’ present rebirth.
