From 10 – 14 September, Janus Boshoff, in conjunction with Orms Cape Town School of Photography, will present a weeklong workshop covering two historical photographic processes, the Van Dyke Brown and Salted Paper. The Van Dyke Brown process, characterised by strong and contrasty chocolate brown hues, was mainly used as a proofing process during the turn of the 20th century. The historically important Salted Paper process, invented by Henry Fox Talbot in the 1830’s, consists of delicate tones of red-brown, and is often referred to as the ‘poor man’s platinum print’. During this practical workshop, chemistry, paper choices, coating techniques, processing, and toning techniques will be covered. Participants will produce at least 6 images. Negative production and options will also be covered.
