my workshop ramble

Some notes, comments and experiences as the workshop manager at the Center for Photography at Woodstock....

let us now praise alternative processes!
what a fun and jam packed weekend with the alt pro guru Christopher James. I wish I could google his brain! he is filled with knowledge about every process you can think of.

Day one- the class worked with cyanotype, pinhole (to make negs), made an albumen mixture and coated paper.

His lecture that night was great. The main thing I walked away from it was to maintain a sense of humor about yourself and your work. Not always easy for me but really good advice. And, I was introduced to Christopher's paintings. They blew my mind! Like what you see below? Check out more here.

Day two- albumen madness. Lots of beautiful work made. Actually, it was amazing to see that everyone got it so quickly. I am inspired.

Look out for my posts all week which will be highlighting some great artists using alt processes in their work.
