    Hands-on, Carbon based Electrophotography with Tom Carpenterr

    We're running a very unique workshop this year that explores the creative use of the electrophotography process (think a camera that uses a Xerox-like technology).

    It's a carbon based process and entirely archival (if you use the proper paper for your prints) and it offers very interesting creative possibilities for image manipulation in a light room. It's entirely hands on, analog, and IMO very cool! To help folks understand the process more we just sat down with our workshop leader, Tom Carpenter, to discuss it further.

    I think this workshop will appeal to a large number of our F295 friends because of the opportunity to construct and fabricate the necessary equipment!

    Tom,

    I find this to be interesting. Years ago, I worked in a print shop when they went to high speed Xerox printers for short print runs. The process always amazed me. I can see how this can work for an alternative process, but finding the equipment may be a problem. The 4x5 version would be interesting, but I think it is a bit too small.

    Ideally, a kit should be developed, including selenium plate, charging unit and toner/carrier beads, for the fledgling electro-photographer to experiment with. I'd certainly be interested.

    a kit would be great... all things are possible with enough money
