Photography students explore sustainable darkroom practices at virtual event

Mon 21 Jun 2021

MA Photography and BA Top-Up students will gather together from Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 July for a virtual face-to-face event that will give them the chance to explore their practice and network with their peers. 

MA Photography graduate Gem Toes-Critchton will deliver a series of workshops to the group.

Gem uses photography, archival research and participatory practices to explore the intersection between art and science, with a focus on plants, illustration and women in history.

During her session with students, Gem will demonstrate a range of processes and techniques on the theme of 'online alternative process and sustainable darkroom practices'.

Students will learn how to make photographs and prints from materials in their fridge and garden, as well as how to develop film with non-toxic recipes that are safe to conduct in their own kitchens.

Portfolio reviews will also take place throughout the event, giving students the opportunity to get valuable feedback on their work from the course team.

In addition, author, critic and essayist Geoff Dyer will join Course Leader Jesse Alexander for a conversation and Q&A with students about photography. 

It should be an exciting few days! For the latest updates from the event, follow #FalmouthFlexEvents on Facebook and Twitter.
