Pinhole Photography Workshop With Ilan Wolf

Pinhole Photography

Pinhole photography workshop with Ilan Wolf, known internationally for his work done with the ancient technique of the camera obscura is a rara avis. Wolf gave his first workshop in Spain in the Fine Arts in Madrid in the 80's he has since remained in love with Spain and so we are fortunate to have frequently with their workshops.

In late July, Wolf will give a workshop in a darkroom technique and frame organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Fenosa Gas under the title The magic of photography. It will be an activity of 18 teaching hours in two sessions on 26 and 27 July.

Workshop attendees will gather the imagination, manual labor and some very basic materials for each participant to create a single image while knows and understands the whole process of image creation. Participants will create your "camera" aimlessly, shooting her and then developing the negative and contact positivar. No optical instruments (objectives or enlargers) involved in the process of creating images, but the centennial of the camera obscura technique already described by Aristotle. Each participant will make positive 6-8 good quality (of the 10 or 12 negative) and two frames of 15 × 30 cm.
