Photogenic drawings

Photogenic drawings belong to the oldest chemical processes in photography. Invented by Willian Henry Fox Talbot in 1834, they can be used to create a positive or to multiply negatives. Here it is used in a positive process. Objects are placed on paper, which was impregnated with salt solution and then activated with a silver nitrate liquid. As soon as exposed to sunlight (or bulb light) the paper is blackened except for the parts covered by objects.

Fotogramme

Angefertigt im Jahr 2014 nach einem Verfahren von William Henry Fox Talbot aus dem Jahre 1834. Fotogramme bilden Gegenständen im Kontaktverfahren ab. Sonnenlicht reagiert mit der lichtempfindlichen Silbernitratlösung, mit der zuvor ein salzgetränktes Papier aktiviert wurde. Das Sonnenlicht schwärzt das Papier überall dort, wo es direkt einfallen kann. Bedeckte Flächen bleiben heller. Talbot nannte seine ersten Fotogramme «photogenic drawings».
