    Works in Salt incorporate 19th century salt-based photo processes.
    Mitch Eckert’s latest body of work, Borrowed Views, explores his most recent interest in the genre of landscape photography.  The monochromatic images employ the use of both old and new technology integrating digitally created negatives with an iron and silver salt based photographic process from the 1880’s commonly referred to as Kallitype.
    Laura Hartford will be exhibiting salt and digital prints from calotypes she created while an artist in residence at the William Henry Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, England. The calotype is a paper negative process originally invented by Fox Talbot in 1840.
