The workshop with Laura Fiorio is based on fun, self production and recycling.
Everyone can discover how photography really works, with no need to buy a camera, but just trying to build your own DIY camera with recycled material. Why? Because building and playing with the principles of photography helps out understanding them.
Creating something unique and personalized in the era of digital and reproduction helps to just stop and think about the meaning of photography itself. Participants will construct cameras, go outside, shoot, and learn how to develop and fix in the darkroom.
The pictures taken during the workshop will be displayed in Urban Spree Galerie after the workshop.
Every participant will receive all the material needed to participate in the workshop, and all the material for the darkroom:– Materials for the construction of the cameras – Photographic paper – Acids for the darkroom – Darkroom tools – Analogue lightmeter – Paint and painting tools .
The fee for the workshop is 95 € including all materials.
