One of the earliest methods for printing photographs was known as salt printing. Introduced by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839, the salted paper method involved printing the image by light rather than developing with chemicals.
In this webinar, Historic Process Specialist Nick Brandreth will demonstrate how salt prints are made. Then, Sarah Casto will discuss salted paper prints from a conservator's perspective.
