“Photos without the camera and disappearing images”

The workshop is addressed mainly to the youngest participants, showing unusual forms of creating images using light. In today’s reality, photographing is extremely easy, but the satisfaction of creating images often disappears due to the ease of their creation. To acquaint young adepts of photography with old techniques of creating images is both learning the history of the language of images and having an instructive fun. Luxography is one of the forgotten techniques. It is a photography based on thephenomenon of photochemical photosensitivity. It allows you to create images directly on photosensitive paper, bypassing the camera. At the same time, allows for unrestricted creation and is open to a chance, often so inspiring in the process of creative education.

In the world of visual excess, the adventure with the creation of paintings on canvas with a phosphorescent pigment that disappears after re-exposure is also surprisingly fun. Participants activate the imagination in the darkness,  creating an opalescent theater of shadows in the dark.

Classes for children from 6 to 13 years old.

The Women of Foton

“The Women of Foton” — premiere of the book with the participation of authors.

The photochemical industry is a light industry, suitable for women. In the photochemical factory of “Foton” most of the crew were women. They have built the post-war legend of Polish analog photography and the success of the largest producer of paper for black and white and color photography. Chemists, lab technicians, accountants have added their own chapter to the history of Foton. Today they passionately talk about their professional choices, a situation of women in the industry, as well as about love and marriages tied in the photographic darkroom. Her voice is joined by outstanding female photographers — Teresa Gierzyńska, Jolanta Marcolla, and Natalia LL, who worked on Foton materials for several decades.

“It’s a great book that you swallow at once. Lightly written and exquisitely illustrated. The photographic industry does not sound appealing, but the story told from the perspective of women is surprisingly fresh and inspiring”.
