The exhibition presents the work of contemporary artists alongside the work of a number of pioneers of photography from the nineteenth century. The current generation of artists strikingly reverts to nineteenth-century techniques and processes, and through purposeful experiments, they create new artworks in a non-traditional way.
During this workshop, you will learn about different techniques from the present and the past. By experimenting with these techniques, you will learn that coincidence also plays a major role in making photographic work. For instance, the work of contemporary artist Sam Falls and the work of Anna Atkins from 1854 serve as inspiration for creating a personal photogram. The works by Onorato & Krebs from 2011, in which they experiment with shutter speed and rotating light objects, invite you to step into the dark and make so-called ‘light still lives’.
The workshop ends with discussing each other's work. In this way, you also learn from the photography of others and learn to recognise your own style. All results are sent digitally afterward, the analogue results can, of course, be taken home.
