Public workshop: “Photogram – Creating with Light”

Photograms are pictures that are taken in the darkroom without a camera. As you experiment with different materials and creative ideas, you will create a wide range of interesting compositions.  Light reflections, shadow plays, razor-sharp silhouettes and superimpositions – the sole requirements are light, photographic paper and fluids. This workshop requires a minimum of five registered participants and is limited to a maximum of twelve people, based on the space available in the photo lab. The workshop is held in German.
