Van Dyke Brown - Ellie Young - 1 Day

Description:

ABOUT VAN DYKE BROWN:

The Van Dyke Brown is similar to the original formula patented by Arndt and Troost in 1895 and based on the first iron-silver process, the argentotype, invented in 1842 by the English astronomer, Sir John Herschel.  A photograph is created in beautiful warm brown tones by coating cotton paper with the light sensitive 3 part solution. Exposure to light changes the light sensitive salts to image forming metallic iron & silver.

Ellie Young

Van Dyke Brown is a contact printing process -  the negative is the same size as the photograph. This process does not require a darkroom.
