Salt and Silver

This will be the very first exhibition in Britain that is fully dedicated to the salted paper photography which is one of the earliest forms of photography. This form of the photography was invented by the British William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839. The new form of this visual technique spread really fast on the world which opened up new possibilities for art. At the exhibition visitors will have the chance to get to know the history of photography and to explore the very few prints that survived the years and it is truly a unique opportunity to see the rarest photographies in the world.
