Dating to the early nineteenth century, salt prints, the result of esoteric knowledge and skill, were among the very first photographs on paper. Individual, sometimes unpredictable, and ultimately magical, the chemical capacity to “fix a shadow” on light sensitive paper, coated in silver salts, was believed to be a kind of alchemy where nature drew its own picture. Salt and Silver brings together over one hundred plates drawn from the Wilson Centre for Photography, accompanied by discussions with curators, academics, historians, and collectors from world-renowned institutions.
