The Kallitype is a hand-coated contact printing process, considered the “poor man’s platinum print” of the late 1800’s, and is a great photographic process for those who want comparable tonal quality of platinum prints on a budget.

Many different colors can be achieved with the Kallitype depending on the developer used: black, brown, blue, or maroon. Students will use a silver nitrate and ferric oxalate solution and learn the proper techniques to hand coat and print in the Kallitype process. This process allows for more freedom to experiment because the chemistry and metals used are more readily available and affordable. Students should bring large format or digital negatives to class for printing.

Instructor Lisa Elmaleh will take students through the Kallitype journey from start to finish. Lisa graduated with honors from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and has received numerous awards, residencies, and fellowships for her outstanding work in the photographic arts.
