The focus of Jeannette Klute’s career at Eastman Kodak Company was on new discoveries in color photography, in particular, the Dye Transfer color process. Klute adopted the laborious Dye Transfer process in the interest of highlighting landscape and natural settings. She promoted environmental concerns in her views, joining a small group of landscape modernists including Elliot Porter, who chose the new aesthetics of advanced color technology over the conventional appearance of black and white nature settings.

The Albumen and Salted Paper Book

The Albumen and Salted Paper Book is a descriptive history of the major photographic printing processes that were used between the years 1840-1895. These first 50 years of photography established a tradition of individual experimentation and craftsmanship where each photographer participated in the manufacture of the printing materials that were used. Albumen print and salted paper print were the ordinary, all-purpose materials of the time—albumen print is the second most common type of photograph ever made.

Through daily portraits, this five-year project charts the physical and emotional changes of two women at the opposite ends of the “young woman” spectrum. One was moving with excitement into adolescence; the other, with trepidation, into middle age. Each day, Elaine and Julia stopped their separate activities and met in their living room to pose for a portrait. They made 1,800 images—not truly comprehending the catalogue of energy and exhaustion, privacy and revelation, unexpected coincidences of mood and emotions that they created.
