ALTERNATIVE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESS

Van Dyke Brown

Van Dyke Brown is an early photographic printing process (historical one).
The process was so named due to the similarity of the print color to that of a brown oil paint named for Flemish painter Sir Anthony van Dyck (1599 - 1641). The paper was embeded in the formula of Van Dyke brown and than dryed in a dark roon. The "negative" is a photograph that was transformed in B&W, printed in a plastic sheet and aplied over the paper. This "sandwich" was exposed for a 2 minutes directely in a sunlight and then washed in water flow; after that the image is fixed using a fixing solution for analogyc photograph found in market.
