Workshop: Developed-Out Salt Print

From November 5, 2014 through November 7, 2014 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at George Eastman House

Invented in the mid-1850s by Louis Desire Blanquart-Evrard as a faster printing alternative to the salt or albumen print, the developed-out salt print is a beautiful medium under appreciated by modern fine art photographers. Each participant will coat his or her own paper with a special sensitizer based on original formulas and process prints made from glass and digital negatives.

Developed-out salt prints have the same aesthetic as platinum prints, but can be made at a fraction of the cost. In addition, these prints are as stable as platinum prints. This is the first public workshop of this unearthed medium. Help us bring this process back to life.

Each participant will receive a complete manual on the developed-out salt printing process written by Mark Osterman. The workshop also includes the rare opportunity to look at vintage examples as compared to other processes popular in the mid-1850s.

Audience: Limited to ten participants, this three-day workshop is suitable for fine art photographers, students, educators, and anyone interested in the beautiful potential of this amazing process. No experience necessary.

Tuition: $500/$475 members, plus $70 materials fee
