Long before Polaroid made the quick takeaway picture possible, street photographers produced analog photos on photo paper. The DARKBOX camera (also known as Camara Minutera, Afghan Box Camera) has the photo laboratory built inside the camera, and photos can thus be developed directly on-site within minutes.
Today, with a camera in each pocket and constant image bombing behind every corner, it is hard to imagine a time when images could not be recorded.
In this workshop you will learn the basics of camera and darkroom work and be able to experiment with the DARKBOX camera to make your own instant analog photos.
The spots are limited: we can accommodate a maximum of 10 participants – book your spot now!
Day 1: Introduction and history of classic instant photography, detailed instruction in camera technology and operation, first photos.
Day 2: Practice, workshop participants can work freely with the cameras under supervision, from classic portraits to experimental long-term exposure, a lot can be tried out!
