ABOUT THE SALT PRINT:
This is a simple process with a number of challenges to master. Salt prints are created by coating paper in a solution of sodium chloride (common salt) followed by a silver nitrate solution to create silver chloride. Exposing to UV light changes the silver chloride to image making metallic silver. Salt prints have a matte surface with wonderful tones ranging from warm to cool browns.

THE SALT PRINT HISTORY
William Henry Fox Talbot, known as the “father” of photography, discovered the salt print process in 1834 but it not announced until 1839. Talbot’s early discoveries were the foundation of numerous photographic and print processes that are practiced today.
