The Paper Negative: A Unique Magic    Oct 11 - Oct 24, 2012


James Hyman will present a special exhibition devoted to early British and French paper negatives. Amongst the most beautiful of all early photographs are paper negatives. Often even more atmospheric than the resulting positive prints, these paper negatives are often embellished with pencil, ink, watercolour and even varnish. This was a means by which the photographer could enhance the resulting print - Baldus for example added clouds to skies - but also increases their extraordinary presence as unique objects comparable to drawings and watercolours. Chance issues, such as the unevenness with which chemicals are brushed on, curious chemical colours and even the bleaching caused by drops of the hypo-sulphate fixing agent all combine to enhance their uniqueness.
