Event description
Expert in alternative and historical photographic techniques Magda Kuca will show you how to make your own pinhole camera and solargraph.

About this Event

In conjunction with our exhibition 'Freeze-frame, Fast-forward' The Koppel Project is excited to announce that photographer Magda Kuca will be leading two Solargraphy workshops. Solargraphy is a  method of making an image using light and time (and an empty beer-can), capturing the movement of the sun and shadows as the world moves around the pinhole camera workshop participants will be creating during the session.

Subverting digital photography's fast-paced 'snapshot' quality whilst still creating something that represents a specific time or span of time, the workshop explores ways of playing with time and memory, elongating the moment even as you 'frame and freeze' it. The workshop is free to attend, all you need to do is bring along the beer-can!

We will be running two sessions, one from 13:00 - 14:00 and one from 14:00 to 15:00. There will be a maximum of 10 participants per session and places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. If you have any questions please get in touch via facebook or email us at info@thekoppelproject.com

Magda Kuca is a Polish photographer currently based in London. She is interested in exploring cyclical nature of human rituals by utilising historical photographic techniques like wet plate collodion, exploring images and processes in the contexts of identity, memory and ethnological investigation. She teaches alternative workshops in historical photographic techniques including cyanotype, gum bichromate, anthotype, gelatin silver printing and others.
