Often referred to as a solar photogram, lumen printing is a cameraless, experimental image-making technique that exposes black and white photographic papers to daylight. This misuse of photographic materials opens up a unique colour palette, as well as the potential for continuous experimentation and exploration. Participants will learn how to expose, manipulate and develop their own lumen prints using a variety of photographic paper types and supplied materials.
No previous experience is required. All materials will be provided.
