The Intermediate Black and White Workshop is designed for those with some basic darkroom experience looking to learn more advanced and archival techniques in the darkroom.  It is also ideal for photographers who need a refresher on archival printing. Participants must provide their own fiber-based paper, up to 16” x 20” in size.  They also have the option to print with R.C. paper (provided by the gallery).  Instructor, Ruth Kaplan will cover techniques and challenges of printing, from enlarger and tray processing to the final wash and print flattening.  The Basic Black and White workshop is recommended prior to taking this workshop but not mandatory based on participants’ experience.


Ruth Kaplan is a Toronto-based photographer whose work explores a variety of themes such as bathers in communal hot springs and participants in rituals of spirituality. Documentary-based, her images are subjective offering a highly personal interpretation of social behaviour. She has exhibited widely over the past twenty years and is represented by the Stephen Bulger Gallery.

Kaplan’s editorial work can be found in major Canadian and international publications. She has received numerous National Magazine Awards, Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council grants. She is a photography instructor at schools including Ryerson University, OCAD and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. She is currently enrolled in an MFA program at Ryerson University School of Image Arts, in Documentary Media.
