12pm – 5pm / 26th May
A one day workshop where Mark will take you through a host of techniques used in his personal practice:
1: Photograms: get to grips with image making in the darkroom. These are the images you will try the following techniques
2: Solarisation – Exposing a partially developed photograph to light, before continuing processing, creating halo-like effects often seen in the work of Man Ray & Francis Bruguiere.
3: Selective Development – abstract your imagery using powdered developer, brushes and sprays.
4: Cyanotypes – That beautiful blue! We’ll coat you papers first so they have time to dry whilst you trying other processes. When they’re dry you’ll use the UV box to make you images and expose you paper.
4: Chemigrams – Painting with photographic chemistry.
We’re very happy for you to bring negatives you’d like to use or any personal objects for your photograms. Please bring something to carry all your prints home in.
Mark has an incredible knowledge of processes so you’ll receive a great introduction to these specialist darkroom processes and it’ll certainly be highly productive!
