This curriculum not only addresses the preservation of the hands-on photographic processes,
it also incorporates contemporary technology that gives it a future in hybridized curricula.
The following curriculum addresses four photographic
techniques in depth and touches upon six others, providing sample
artwork from each process--many of which were created for this
proposed curriculum. A few of the processes stem from the birth
of what we know as photography, nearly 200 years ago. Others
were created as the evolving changes that have brought us to our
present day use of digital photography. Many of these processes
can be hybridized, combining established ideas and practices with
current technologies to produce an affordable option to a full blown
photography curriculum, making its projects and
experiments manageable in most art classrooms.
They can be further explored using Christopher James The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes.
