Historical Context:
Gelatin silver printing has been the primary black and white photographic process since its development in the 1880s. It consists of three layers. The paper serves as a base to hold the top two layers. The middle layer is called the baryta layer, a prepared by using as barium sulfate. The top layer, the gelatin layer, consists of light-sensitive compounds that once developed in a chemical bath, holds the actual image.
