Originally pioneered by Man Ray and Lee Miller in the 1920s Photograms are images produced on photosensitive materials without the use of film or cameras.
This half-day/evening class invites participants to explore the opportunities offered when everyday objects are creatively placed on photographic paper and exposed to light. The unique results are fun to produce and with practice can yield subtle and beautiful images without the technical challenges of printing from film.
This short course is ideal for the photographer who is looking for alternative ways of making images with light. It is also perfect for individuals or small groups (particularly youngsters) who are interested in understanding how light sensitive materials produce images.
The course will include paper and chemicals but participants are encouraged to bring their own objects to create the photograms from.
