Dainesha Nugent-Palache, Darkroom Artist-in-Residence.


This workshop is an exercise in deliberate unpredictability, where chance, play and intuition become essential mediums in the image-making process.  Within every discipline and when working in the darkroom, there is a generally accepted “correct” method to achieve a certain outcome. In this workshop we will be disregarding the rules and removing the constraints of expectation —with exception to health and safety protocols—to produce photographic artworks created from a place of audacious fluidity. 

Workshop participants will be led to discover new unconventional ways of working in the black & white darkroom, leaving them with the courage to embrace experimentation, variability, and surprise within their artistic practice. 

Students are asked to bring objects of various opacities, textures, and sizes, cellphones or tablets, and any negatives they might like to use.
