This course provides an introduction to darkroom printing processes which will extend students’ knowledge, abilities, and spectrum of darkroom printing. Black and white paper can be rendered in so many versatile ways, and during this course participants will explore 3 techniques to create stunning and unique prints.
During the course you will have the opportunity to create a series of prints from a number of materials, personal or found images and objects and develop your own personal project with supervision. Many of the processes covered have been overlooked and pushed to the wayside but are now being taken up again by fine art photographers worldwide.
There’s much to be learned from the present state of photography and throughout the course we will discuss a wide selection of photographs – from photography’s inception over 160 years ago through to its current state – in an informal capacity.
This course aims to balance technical information and critical conceptual thinking with a relaxed yet engaging and fun practical class time. Open to all levels, it is recommended you bring or wear suitable clothes for darkroom use and/or an apron, smock, or lab coat.
