Seasoned: contemporary salt prints

6 December 2013 – 24 January 2014


Ben Cauchi
Discovered in 1842, not so very long after the salted paper print, the Doppler Effect describes a perceptual shift. And shifting perception has, from the salt print on, been what photography does best. For me the appeal of the salt print lies mostly in its unique physical qualities but also in its alchemical and historical associations, thus providing the perfect medium with which to weave a little fiction in the form of
The Doppler Effect portfolio.

Using 19 century processes, I make my own "found" photographs in order to re-imagine the early history of Photography from the distance of these 150 years. Drawing from the anonymous past - genre studies, still lifes, medical illustrations and nameless portraits - I aim to tell my own story through the forgotten conventions of the art, a false history dreaming of its own past. [from: Tools of Survival ]

Wayne Barrar
The salt print as a process has both a history and an aesthetic. While I am interested in the history (and the fact that New Zealand largely missed out on being visualised by this particular photographic technology), my intent is to explore how our contemporary landscapes respond to the visual weightiness of this slow and richly descriptive way of making a photograph.
