Persistent Shadow considers the photographic negative both as part of a now-historic process and as an aesthetic object in its own right. Drawn exclusively from the unrivalled holdings of George Eastman House, the exhibition is centered on John Loengard’s portfolio of re-photographed historical negatives, as well as rare calotype, collodion and roll film negatives in an abbreviated survey of more than 100 years of photographic history.
