Lightwork: Exploring Cameraless Photography

Photographic imagery need not be bound to cameras, so let’s leave the gear talk behind and seek the light. Using materials ranging from traditional black and white chemicals to plants from your garden, explore a variety of experimental photo techniques you can adapt to your home studio–with or without a darkroom. Processes will include photograms, cliché verre, solarization, chemigrams, anthotype, cyanotype, lumens, and cyanolumens. We’ll incorporate objects, drawing, painting, and printmaking techniques into our work and discuss contemporary photographic issues of physicality, ephemerality, and permanence. All levels.
