27-28 April 2019

A two day workshop will provide an introduction to colour photography by experimenting with ‘’wrong’’ processing methods – cross process, reversal process, washing film emulsion in soap and other synthetic and organic materials.
Students will shoot on slidefilm and afterwards develop the film in C41 chemistry (Cross Processing). There will be fresh as well as expired films available. The teachers will show and explain how to shoot with such old, expired films and how to develop the films without destroying the emulsion so that you still can get interesting and beautiful results with the photos.

During the workshop, there will be a photo walk where students will go for a walk with their cameras to take photos, which will be later developed using those creative techniques.

In his practice, he is using expired films as well as various manipulations of colour emulsion in the darkroom.
