Judith Harrison Kalter taught for 33 years in the Birmingham Public School System before moving to Northern Michigan, where she continued to pursue her interest in the history of photography and visual culture. She has taught, organized exhibits, written and lectured on cyanotypes, daguerrotypes, tintypes, and other early 19th century photographic processes at the Pontiac Historical Society, MacDowell Elementary School in Detroit, CTAC and the Glen Arbor Women’s Club. Currently, she is working on a series of handmade books with prints inspired by the nineteenth- century English naturalist and pioneering photographer, Anna Atkins. Atkins produced the first book entirely illustrated with cyanotypes, a photographic process now known as the blueprint. A longtime volunteer at the Crooked Tree Art Center, Judith is excited to participate in the fall workshop series.
