Discover the magic of photography as an art form in our enthralling Liquid Light Mementos Workshop, led by the esteemed 2021 PhotoAccess Wide Angle Resident Eunie Kim. Learn to create stunning photographic prints using painterly methods, merging the worlds of photography and fine art.
Bring treasured personal objects from home that hold sentimental value, represent your identity, or express a deeper narrative. Together, we will reimagine these items, breathing new life into them through liquid light printing, with unique photographic emulsion techniques that will transform the familiar into the extraordinary.
Step by step, you’ll uncover the secrets of capturing subjects on analogue film, selecting the perfect paper texture, applying liquid light emulsion, and developing striking final prints. Experience the joy of hands-on creativity as you explore various application methods, such as brushstrokes, adding a tactile and experimental aspect to your photographic process.
Using liquid silver gelatin emulsion, a light-sensitive solution that’s developed through standard darkroom practices, you’ll craft truly unique prints. With various combinations of techniques and paper choices, each creation will be a delightful surprise, only revealed once the final print emerges in the darkroom. Tap into your creative instincts and uncover the vast potential of this alternative photography process.
Join us for this transformative workshop spanning two weekends (May 13th & 14th, 20th & 21st) from 10 am-1 pm at PhotoAccess in the Manuka Arts Centre.
While a basic or introductory level of darkroom experience is preferred, it’s not essential. If you have no prior experience, please inform us before the workshop, and additional support will be provided.
Expect an email with detailed instructions prior to the workshop, ensuring a seamless and inspiring experience.
