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