Chris Peregoy will share his love of the magic of photography in a hands-on Lumenbox & Solargraphy workshop on Saturday, September 11 at the Peale Museum. In this workshop, participants will build two cameras: a Lumenbox camera and a Solargraphy camera, like the ones Chris used to create his artworks in the SPARK: New Light exhibition, and load them with light-sensitive material.
Lumenbox and Solargraphy photography allows the photographer to record an image over an extreme duration of time. In Lumenbox photography a small lens focuses the light on a tiny circle of paper that is exposed for as little as 20 minutes or up to a few weeks. With Solargraphy, a pinhole is used and the path or movement of the sun can be recorded for a week, month, or even a year. These techniques don’t require a darkroom or any chemicals. A phone camera or scanner is used to reverse the negative image into a positive for sharing or printing.
There will be two sessions of this workshop; sign-up to reserve a spot. Each session is limited to 12 participants and is suitable for adults and teenagers.
SPARK: New Light is curated by Catherine Borg.
SPARK: New Light is made possible by a generous grant from PNC Bank.
