Slides
In Edward Hartwig's home archive, except for photographic prints and negatives, we can also find colourful slides. They come from different periods of his artistic development, mainly from the 1970s. When processing the legacy of a photographer, we decided to separate this set, using a technical criterion. For this reason, the resource includes photos from travels, landscapes, photos of willows.
 
When analysing Hartwig's artistic output, one can certainly notice that the use of this kind of carrier – slides – had its important justification. Transparencies, namely slides, are characterised by high quality of projection and large intensification of colours. Hartwig was clearly searching for a medium adequate for his experiments with colour photography, but ordinary negative photography did not satisfied him in this aspect. Before the period of digital technology of recording images, transparencies were the main carrier of image, used for the needs of graphics and printing, since they exceeded negative photography in terms of quality.
 
Hartwig, searching for modern formal solutions in his concept of photography, anticipated, as it turned out, the mindset close to digital photography, using slides and treating them as a unique platform between analog and digital photography.
