These alternative processes include (but are not limited to) albumen, cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, platinum/palladium, gum bichromate, bromoil, salt print, ambrotype, tintype, image transfer and Ziatype. 19th Century photographic processes dominate this genre, however some modern methods have joined the accepted ranks.” (via Soho Photo)
