Workshop, April 23, 2023
Salt prints constitute the earliest photographic process for making positive prints which William Henry Fox Talbot first presented in 1839. Alongside the daguerreotype, the salt print dominated photography until the late 1850s. Photographers such as Hippolyte Bayard and Gustave Le Grey in France and David Octavius Hill & Robert Adamson created images of exceptional beauty using this process.
Today salt prints offer a distinct alternative process that can be used to create simple photograms or sophisticated prints from digitally made negatives.
The workshop runs from 10 am to 4 pm and is limited to 4 participants. It includes morning tea and a light lunch. Please bring your own lunch if you have specific dietary requirements, a fridge and microwave are available.
