Photographic technology over the last few decades has allowed us to create near perfect images sometimes in seconds and there are very few of us today who stop to think of the revolution in the field of photography that has allowed us to reach where are today. Traditional photographic printing processes take us back in time and help us understand how the art form developed and grew across the world. At Museo, we have been experimenting with and teaching a few different printing processes and through this blog will be sharing relevant content that will help you all dig deeper into the world of alternate processes.
