ONSITE: Lumen Prints

Explore photographic image making in a new way with lumen prints. Learn to use this analog process to create solar photograms: colorful, handmade images made with sunlight and light-sensitive darkroom paper. The process is experimental, serendipitous and playful – the results are often difficult to predict and totally beautiful. This class is great for both beginners and experienced darkroom artists.

About the Instructor

Em White

I am a photographer and educator, focusing in historic photographic processes. I work with medium and large format film, as well as create negatives using the wet-plate collodion process. Frequently, I can be found setting up my mobile darkroom along bucolic back roads and hazy riverbeds, working with my hands and light to capture a disappearing reality. As an artist, my work is greatly influenced by the land I come from, a place of impenetrable growth and dark tunnels of kudzu. I use historic photographic processes to capture contemporary subjects and I have a portrait studio here in Richmond where I enjoy collaborating and creating with members of our community.
