Osterman and France Scully Osterman established Scully & Osterman
in 1991. Through
extensive primary research and practical application, the Ostermans
have evolved as historians and modern masters of a wide variety of historic (alternative) photography, most notably, the wet-plate
current artistic revival of collodion photography is a direct result
of their influence. They were the leaders in exhibiting and publishing their work as artists in the early 1990s, openly sharing their knowledge through lectures, publications, workshops and tutorials. Photograph conservators, collectors, museum curators and the most advanced collodion photographers turn to the Ostermans when they have collodion-related questions.
in Rochester, NY, Mark Osterman is Photographic Process Historian at George Eastman Museum. Mark's unique series of workshops chronicling the evolution of photography are now open to the public. These workshops tap the extensive resources of the Eastman Museum collection, including period publications, inspection of vintage masterworks and equipment from the archives.
France Scully Osterman is an artist and educator. She and works and teaches in their skylight
studio, and gives lectures and workshops at universities and museums in the U.S. and internationally.
The Ostermans are both represented by Howard Greenberg Gallery, NYC and Tilt Gallery, Scottsdale, AZ.
