VISITING ARTIST WORKSHOP
Salt Printing (833)Guest Artist, Dan Estabrook
Friday and Saturday, May 11 - 12th
10 am - 5 pm
(Non-refundable $50 cancellation fee, no refund after 4/27/2018)
This two-day workshop draws from the very beginnings of Photography on paper, from the early Photogenic Drawings of William H. F. Talbot to the later advancements in the process. We will dive right in, making photograms on plain salted paper, then work our way up into gelatin-sized and toned prints, looking at the variations in formulae along the way. We will also discuss how to create the right negatives, using the students own images, to best show the beauty of this wonderful technique.
For over twenty years Dan Estabrook has been making contemporary art using a variety of 19th-century photographic techniques, including calotype negatives, salt prints, gum bichromate and carbon. He balances his interests in photography with forays into sculpture, painting and drawing. Dan has exhibited widely and has received several awards, including an Artist's Fellowship from the NEA in 1994. He is also the subject of a documentary film by Anthropy Arts. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Dan's website, http://danestabrook.com/
