Experimental Cameraless Photography with Kate Robertson

  • The Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) 404 George Street Fitzroy, VIC, 3065 Australia (map)

In this one-day workshop participants will engage with analogue and digital alternative photographic processes, combining Lumen printing (an analogue, solar photogram, where objects (often organic) are placed directly onto the light sensitive photographic paper and developed by sunlight, creating a negative impression of the object in variety of coloured hues) and Scanography (the process of capturing digitised images with the use of a flat bed scanner and distorting them).

You will be encouraged to embrace the experimental and unpredictable nature of these cameraless processes. Discover how errors can be transformed into new possibilities.

By embedding materials directly onto the photographic paper and the flat bed scanner, you will make images that actively shift between digital and analogue to consider the differences between these technologies for capturing light and manipulating images. In the workshop participants will create original images using both techniques. The resulting images will then be used in the creation of new images by combining the two technologies.

This workshop is suitable for people with no previous experience or intermediate experience of alternative photographic processes.
