Salt paper experimentations

As part of my class of photographic experimentations I’ve been working with salt paper (XIX century technique) and using objects and transparencies to make photographs by contact under the direct influence of the sun, a lot of experimentation, a lot of errors and great experiences have emerged of this process over different surfaces and papers.

Some pieces of the work. Scans of the salted paper photographs and some interventions of the pieces made in the computer.

I’ve included some pics taken with my cell phone of the montage close to the window to burn the silver solution on the paper. And of course one of my great 3 years old assistant, Iván Linares. Some rips in one or two pieces are part of his artistic contribution.
