4 0 c m
actual image size: 26cm x 32cm


Salt paper print from a calotype negative by William Henry Fox Talbot. This could well be the first portrait ever taken on paper (as opposed to the earlier Daguerreotypes). The creases in the print make it look as if the paper was folded to slip into a pocket or container.
