Salted Paper Workshop set for Sept. 14-15 at NOPA Gallery

NOPA will host a workshop on salted paper process photography, a technique dating from the 1830s, at its Lower Garden District gallery during the weekend of September 14-15. It will be led by NOPA member Adam Finkelston, a photographic artist from Kansas City, Mo.

The workshop hours are set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Saturday and Sunday workshop dates. Tution is $175 for members and $215 for non-members.

The NOPA Gallery is located at 1111 St. Mary Street.

For those not in the know, the salted paper process was invented in the 1830s by photographic pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot. It has recently enjoyed a resurgence, along with other alternative processes, through the work of contemporary practitioners such as Dan Estabrook and Mark Osterman.
