Workshop + Group Exhibition
In the context of the exhibition Atmosphère the artists are offering workshops to the public to learn about the techniques used to conceive the artworks exposed in Friedrichshain Gallery.
Laura Fiorio will offer a workshop concerning how to make a D-I-Y camera and how to use it.
The workshop is based on fun, self production and recycling. no previous knowledges in the field of photography are required. The workshop will be held in german, english or spanish.
Everyone can discover how photography really works, with no need to buy a camera, but just trying to build an own self-made d-i-y camera with recycled material. 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.
after a brief theoretical introduction the workshop will be developed in practical terms: participants will construct cameras, go outside, shoot, and learn how to develop and fix in the darkroom.
The results of the workshops and the pictures of the participants will be exhibited in the Fotogalerie Friedrichshain during the finissage of Atmosphère on March 18th!
the workshop will take place on March 12th, 2016, with the following timings
- 10:00 – 11:00 Presentation and introduction to pinhole photography. slideshow of most well known artists and photographers using this particular technique, brief introduction to theory and photography principles.
- 11:00 – 12:30 Build your own camera! Everyone will get hands dirty in constructing a camera with personalized characteristics.
- 12:30 – 13:00 Lunch break
- 13:00 – 14:00 Introduction to the darkroom. acids, papers, timings and particular experimental methodologies
- 14:00 – 18:00 Photography sessions and development in the darkroom.
