Especially looking for digital negative and hand coated print in Kallitype, Argyrotype or VanDyke Brown. (But in-camera negative work is also allowed)

Many of you are familiar with Routledge's publication of the series "Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography"

Routledge will be publishing a book on Kallitype, Van Dyke, and Argyrotype. This is a call for artists to submit work for possible inclusion in the artist's section.

Call for work:

RE: Open call for Kallitype and/or VanDyke Brown and/or Argyrotype images


Focal Press, an imprint of Routledge, has spearheaded a series entitled Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography. Each book in the series is devoted to a single process, or a process and its related techniques. Now, Focal Press/Routledge and I are teaming up to publish a book on Kallitype, VanDyke Brown and Argyrotype, for which I invite you to submit work.


You are invited to submit images along with answers to a brief questionnaire on your process(es). Entries will be evaluated for inclusion in the book based upon answers to the questionnaire and the images provided. You must submit both. I am looking for creative use of any of these processes, including any of the following:

• Unusual print media beyond paper – ceramic, glass, leather, wood, or other non-paper media.

• Use of toners to change image tone, whether during development or as an additive to the sensitizer.

• Spilt or multiple toning to achieve creative results.

• Use of any controls that expand or contract the image exposure scale such as fumed alumina, humidity (pre-or post-exposure), sensitizer additives such as dichromates, dichromates in developers.

• Creative or unusual variants of these processes.


Please submit to Dropbox, WeTransfer, or some other file transfer method and send the URL(invite sharing) to carbontransferprinter@gmail.com.

1. 3-10 images, sRGB colorspace, sized no larger than 300ppi, 10˝ longest side, TIFF, no compression. Please include at least one vertical image and one horizontal in the bunch, which insures a greater chance of fitting into multiple page formats and layouts. Note: In addition, you can send scans of any failed prints for a pictorial guide to troubleshooting Kallitype, Vandyke Brown and/or Argyrotype.

2. Filename should include your name, process and title for each .tif file. E.g. DonNelson_VDB_AnchorChains

3. In a Word docx in the folder, the following information which will be used for image captioning:

a. If images have been previously published, where.

b. Year, title, and image size of work. Don’t forget size! E.g 2019_AnchorChains_10x13

c. Exact process of the work (e.g. traditional process name toned with xxx)

d. Exactly how you want your name to appear next to the work, e.g. Destined for the Museum © DonNelson2022

4. The artist must have permission forms for any person(s) or property in the photograph if applicable.

5. Include a short bio 50–100 words in 3rd person that includes your website; for example:

Christina Z. Anderson’s work focuses on the contemporary vanitas in historic photographic processes. Her work has shown nationally and internationally in over one hundred shows and sixty publications. Anderson has authored seven books on alternative process photography which have sold in over forty countries. Anderson is Professor of Photography at Montana State University, Bozeman. To see her work, visit christinaZanderson.com.

6. Include a short artist statement if all photographs come from a particular body of work. For example:

(sample artist statement here, if desired) RolePlay Series: A framework for my life has always been my place as youngest in a family of eight—seven sisters and one brother. With a ball-busting, matriarchal mother and thirteen years of all-girl schools, growing up was girl-power all the way, balanced in part by an uber-masculine father. With my formative years spanning the traditional 1950s to the radical 1970s, it is not surprising that gender themes appear in my work. Roles have become more fluid since that time, but if popular culture is any indication, the more things change the more they remain the same. This series utilizes a snapshot-aesthetic to poke fun at gendered expectations. The prints are hand-coated, sun-exposed, salted paper, connecting the series to the very beginnings of photographic history.

7. Deadline for submitting work is May 8, 2022, but send work any time before that date. The earlier the better.

Submission of work is not a guarantee of acceptance – there is space for around 20-25 artists, with selection based on both the images and the 500–1000 word questionnaire describing your work in the processes. Although there is no monetary compensation, the benefits are a publication line on the résumé, inclusion in a contemporary historical snapshot of these processes, and a copy of the book in electronic form. Some print copies are available.

8. If accepted, you will be notified by May 30, 2022, at which time there will be a release form to sign and send back to me via email, prior to July 1, 2022. You retain rights to your works but grant permission for publication in this book in print and digital form.


--------------- you must use the questionnaire format and return it with the images of your work ------------------------


Kallitype VanDyke Brown, and Argyrotype Questionaire

I give Don Nelson permission to use all or part of this interview in his Routledge book, directly quoted or edited. Signed (if digitally signed, indicate after the name):

Signature:________________________________________________________________________________



· Feel free to add as much information as you want, including answers to questions not asked. The goal of the questionnaire is to get to the individuality of each artist to provide an historical snapshot of how the Kallitype and/or Vandyke Brown and/or Argyrotype boundaries are being pushed right here, right now.

· Questionnaire will be edited to fit, but it could also be used verbatim so spend extra time being sure it is what you want to say and how you want to say it. Questions will be removed so it will be more like an essay.

· Try for somewhere between 500–1000 words (more is better than less; too short can look “stingy” compared to others who have elaborated).

· If you are submitting images for more than one process, please describe each process in the format below.

· Return your typed answers in this Word doc, saved with your name, e.g., last followed by first: Doe-Jane.docx.
