Salt Prints and The Edinburgh Calotype Club

Edinburgh has a long history of Salt Prints. Ranging back to the late 1830’s Hill and Adamson used the technique to produce prints using Talbot’s process. One of their subjects was the fishing village of Newhaven.


Last summer Edinburgh LoFi had an Extraordinary Meeting of the Edinburgh Calotype Club at Newhaven, to pay homage to the first photographic society in the world.


Some of the negatives have now been made into Salt Prints and a Japanese bound album has been made to hold them.
