@lacma : Happy #WorldPhotoDay! 📸Albumen prints were the most common form of photographic prints in the mid-19th century, and used egg whites to bind photographic chemicals to the paper itself. Before the advent of color processing, these prints were sometimes colored by hand to add additional layers of depth and realism.
