Yesterday’s Lecture/Demo

Filed under: Alternative Processes,Salted-paper Prints — Frank @ 10:08 PM

Yesterday evening I gave a presentation titled “19th Century Photography” at the Tuttle Library here in Antrim. The presentation accompanied an exhibition of my cyanotypes, salted-paper and platinum/palladium prints* that are currently on display in the library.

Along with the talk/slideshow I did a demonstration of salted-paper printing; shown below is the print that resulted from the evening’s festivities. I have matted the print and will take it down to the library for their collection.

* These processes were all invented in the 19th century: salted-paper printing in 1839, cyanotype in 1842 and platinum/palladium printing in the 1880s.


  1. Oooh, I wish I’d known about your presentation. I don’t live in Antrim, but maybe I’ll try to go by the library and see the exhibit.

  2. Really like this print – definitely has that “old-style” look and feel. Might be reason enough to go north some day to see this print 🙂
