Did You Know?

The contact sheet is a twentieth-century phenomenon.

Description

The contact sheet-- a piece of photographic paper which contains positive prints of some or all of the negatives on a roll of film—was necessitated by the advent of roll film, which produced small negatives, and rendered obsolete with the advent of digital photography. Having access to a photographer’s contact reveals the artists’ thoughts and working processes.
