WET COLLODION NEGATIVES & SALT PRINTING: HANDS-ON WORKSHOP
9th & 10th August 2014
9am - 5pm
About the Workshop
Negative and prints, is how collodion photgraphy started in the 1850's. The collodion negative can yield an incredible range of tones and dynamic which is perfectly matched by 19th century print out papers like salted paper and albumen printing. The tonal range of a well made salt print is barely surpassed by any other photographic paper.
In this workshop you will learn how to make you own wet collodion negatives; coating the plates, sensitizing, exposing the plate, developing, fixing and eventually intensifying the negative for a greater density.
On the second day you will print negatives on hand coated pre-1880 photographic papers. Initially starting with salt prints, this will progress to Vandyke, Cyanotype or Gum bichromate if time allows.
"Over the last years I specialized in collodion negatives, both wet and dry, and the pre 1880 printing processes (Salt/Albumen, Gum bichromate…),
which I use entirely for my photographic work. My current major project is 'How to remember?' about the Culture of Commemoration in the context of
the Great War (WWI) in the Ypres Salient, Belgium. You can find some of the Ypres images here:
