The silver gelatin process is the photographic process that was introduced by Richard Leach Maddox in 1871 with later improvements by Charles Harper Bennett in 1878. A silver gelatin photograph is created when a suspension of silver salts in gelatin is coated onto a support such as glass, flexible plastic or film. These light-sensitive materials are stable under normal keeping conditions and are able to be exposed and processed even many years after they were created.
