December, 2017 | WORKSHOP
Last week I was in Istanbul for one of my first workshops ‘Understanding photography with the pinhole principle’, at MEF university, part of the workshop week there. It was a great and instructive experience for the students, and me as well. The workshop explains how to make a pinhole camera from a shoebox, how to use it, how to use light sensitive photo paper, and also what we can learn from this simple device. We used a very primitive but useful darkroom on a dark spot under the amphitheatre.
In a way this workshop shows something about where photography comes from and what it became over the years.
Here you can see some of the works my students made. They did a great job! Thanks everybody for your enthusiasm and dedication!
Soon I will have a similar workshop coming up. So keep an eye on my website and Facebook, and those of Untitled, CP.
