Experimenting in the Darkroom Photography Workshop
Curious about how black-and-white print photographs are made? Want to try your hand at making analog prints from your own digital images? This is your chance to try some old school darkroom printing right on campus.
As part of its continuing Do-It-Yourself series, the Museum is teaming up with Art Club to invite students to learn how to use the darkroom. Inspired by Carrie Mae Weems: Strategies of Engagement at the McMullen, we’re meeting up on main campus to experiment with various photographic techniques. Email us a couple of your favorite high-res photos ahead of time and we’ll turn them into negatives. You’ll use the negatives to create your own black-and-white photographs in BC’s photography darkroom, located in Devlin Hall. Chemistry and paper will be provided.
Lisa Kessler draws on both journalism and art to make documentary photographs. In 2015 she was awarded the George Gund commission to photograph the transformation of the Cleveland Public Schools. She is a 2011 recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship and was runner-up for the Honickman Foundation/Center for Documentary Studies First Book Prize. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Danforth Museum of Art, and Lehigh University. She teaches in Boston College’s Art, Art History, and Film Department.
