ATTENTION: This workshop is cancelled. In its place, a walk-in workshop is available.
Be inspired by the images of William Eggleston. This American photographer is famous for using colour in his work. In the exhibition Los Alamos, he shows the American daily life in the sixties and seventies. The workshop will start with an interactive tour. You are going to explore the stories behind the photographs and talk about the difference in colour and black and white.
Eggleston used an extraordinary way of printing, which made it possible to get exactly the right colours. After the tour you will go outside and take an interesting photograph in black and white. You will receive a black and white print of the photograph you took and turn this into something colourful. You will do so, by layering every colour just like Eggleston did and learn how special colour photography actually is.
