Exploring the idea of 'home' with the camera obscura

In this workshop work with photographic artist Gisela Torres to develop an expanded visual approach on the theme Home via abstraction, form, light and shadow using the camera obscura and a smart phone.

The workshop looks at how merging historical and digital photographic practices to document and construct layered narratives can foster experimental contemporary visual languages. Over the course of the day, participants will work independently and in pairs.

Equipment: Anything that is used to capture images, including mobile phones.
