Join 2020 Dark Matter Resident Emilio Cresciani on a journey though making photograms with ice!
This cameraless photography technique involves creating images by setting objects directly onto the surface of light-sensitive paper and exposing it to light using an enlarger.In this workshop you will experiment with light and shadow, learning all about this photographic process and create rather than capture images with your own set of prints to take home.
The workshop will explore the magic of light, paper and water in the form of ice, as it slowly transitions to water. Beautiful abstract landscapes are made as the ice melts onto the paper. Early photographers explored this process including Henry Fox Talbot and Man Ray and his Rayographs.
On the day, Emilio will introduce his climate change inspired artwork on show in the Huw Davies Gallery, State of Change, and then together as a group guide you through making photograms with ice.
All materials are provided, including ice and one pack of photographic paper per workshop participant!
Emilio Cresciani is the 2020 PhotoAccess Dark Matter resident. Emilio graduated from Sydney College of the Arts in 2012. His artwork explores redundancy, transition and altered landscapes. His interest is on objects, structures and in particular the increasing number of ‘non-places’ that fill our environment. Recently, Emilio has been working with the shifting landscape in relation to climate change and the melting ice caps.
