Explore the artistic potential of lumen printing in this distinct workshop with New York-based photographic artist Rachelle Bussières. Lumen prints are camera-less gelatin silver prints exposed to light and put directly in the fix. During this one-day workshop, participants will experiment with different techniques and develop an understanding of the factors that influence the colors on the gelatin silver prints – light, sun, time, and paper. Fiber based photographic paper (neutral and warm-toned) will be supplied.
