Photographic Lumen Printing Workshop with Rosalba Breazeale

Photographic Lumen Printing Workshop with Rosalba Breazeale
March 25th, 2023
1 pm–3 pm

Purchase Tickets Here: $5 (price includes gelatin paper supply fee)

There will be limited seating for this workshop.
All ages are welcome to participate.

The Lumen Printing process dates to 19th-century photographic history. A physical camera, as we know it, is not used, hence the technique is also referred to as “camera-less” photography.

A Lumen requires only silver gelatin paper, light, and physical objects to create a unique and colorful print. Also known as a photogram, the process involves placing objects on paper and then exposing the paper to sunlight. The resulting print leaves a “shadow’ outline of what was placed on the paper. Organic matter such as flowers and leaves are often depicted due to their unique chemical properties. However, three-dimensional objects work as well.

Join artist and instructor, Rosalba Breazeale, on March 25 from 1 pm-3 pm for a two-hour lumen printing workshop at Strata Gallery, 418 Cerrillos Road, Suite 1-C.

Please bring a few objects that have significance to you and can fit on an 8 in. x 10 in. piece of paper. This could be a specific flower, jewelry, or a lucky object. Organic and reflective materials (glass, metal) may make particularly interesting photographs!

Wear warm clothes as we may spend some time outside if the weather permits! Exposure time will likely take an hour. While we wait, we will share stories about our precious objects. I will also share stories about a few pieces in the exhibition.

Silver Gelatin paper will be provided for a $5 supply fee. (Fee included in price of ticket)

Masks are encouraged.
