Alternative Photo Process: The Chemigram

Starts: Saturday May 25th

12 – 3 PM

Instructor: Ariel Bader-Shamai

The Chemigram is an alternative photochemical process that produces camera-less, nonrepresentational images. Using light and light-sensitive materials, we will bring painterly qualities into the darkroom – except, we won’t be in a dark room. This workshop will also introduce you to some basic photo and darkroom 101. No darkroom experience required.

She received her MA in Film and Photographic Preservation and Collections Management from Ryerson University in 2017. Ariel is a founding member of DIY artist collective HAVN, where she once operated a darkroom. She has curated a number of photography exhibitions in Hamilton and Toronto, and is the editor of analog photography based zine, Solecism.
