Calotype – salted paper | Photography Workshop


About the event

Calotype, aka talbotype,  is an early photographic process introduced in 1841 by William Henry Fox Talbot. The technique involves coating a sheet of paper with silver chloride and exposing it to UV light in a camera obscura without chemical processing. These prints are as durable as images produced in silver processes.
The image, deep brown or black in colour, would also be coated with beeswax to improve the translucency of the base.

Instructor: Roman Krawczenko

Roman Krawczenko (b.1957) –  Photographer, historian, instructor. Since 2015 he has been running the Photography Studio of Workshops of Culture, located in one of the most beautiful corners of Lublin’s city centre and named after the Hartwig family. While working in Poland, Roman has developed his own alternative photographic technique, which is the result of three years (2015-2018) of experimenting with four historical photographic techniques – wet plate collodion, ambrotype, verre eglomise and orotone. Roman has given the name Lublintone to this mixed photographic technique, created in Lublin. In May 2016, works in this technique were exhibited for the first time at the Festival of Analogue Photography in Barcelona (Spain). Roman Krawczenko is happy to share his knowledge and skills with young Polish photographers. Therefore, it is not an exaggeration to say that his efforts contribute to the emergence of a new school of photography in Poland.
