August 2014 newsletter


Ever heard of "Electrumtype"... read on...

There are so many alternative photographic processes to explore. Richard Eugene Puckett gives us an overview of the Electrumtype, perhaps the next process for you to try? Or, since summer is not over yet, if you have not already tried Anthotypes, do! Below is an overview of the chemistry.

Also, we are very curious to get an overview of how you are all using alternative photographic processes. Do fill in the survey which is an initiative of Dutch Alternative Photography: The Practice of Alternative Photographic Processes Worldwide. The results will be published here in the autumn.
