Kallitype Printing




Unveiling the Past: The History of Kallitype Printing The kallitype process, invented in the 19th century by Dr. W. W. J. Nicol, is a lesser-known but highly esteemed photographic technique. Kallitype, also known as the “poor man’s platinum print,” involves coating paper with a ferric oxalate and silver nitrate solution, producing images with remarkable depth and detail. Unlike other processes of the time, kallitypes are known for their rich, warm tones and incredible stability, making them a favorite among photographers seeking both beauty and permanence.

In the early days of photography, kallitypes offered an affordable yet high-quality alternative to platinum prints. The process involves exposing the coated paper to UV light through a negative, followed by development, fixing, and toning to achieve the final image. This method allowed photographers to experiment with various tonal adjustments and created prints that could last for generations.
