This is a semi-advanced darkroom workshop intended for photographers looking to learn how to combine multiple digital and analogue negatives together to create a single print using a variety of masking techniques. The art of combination printing is a beautiful opportunity for artists to embrace the elements of intuition and chance within the technical field of analogue printing. Within this three-hour workshop artist and instructor, Katelyn Gallucci will provide participants with tips, and nontraditional materials such as fabric overlays, screens and stock digital negatives for open use.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own digital negatives and sheer materials for printing. While combination printing can be used to create seamless images, this workshop will focus on how to overlay materials to create imagery that is uniquely one of a kind. Additionally, attendees will also receive a take-away hand out of different experimental photography methods and tricks.
Katelyn Gallucci is currently Gallery 44’s artist-in-resident and M. F. A. Candidate at York University. Her artist practice is focused on using experiments in analogue photography to contemplate embodiment and the complexities of the female identity. Her work has been exhibited locally including Gallery 44’s Proof 25 exhibition and featured on the Toronto Symphony Orchestra summer program guide. Additionally, Katelyn has been the proud recipient of the Ontario Arts Council material grant and The Susan Crocker and John Hunkin Award.
