f295 Symposium 2008: An Examination of Lensless, Alternative and Adaptive Photographic Processes

Schedule of Events

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

9am-5pm: Symposium Kick-off Workshop: Toy Camera Modern Tintype Workshop with Jill Enfield Sold Out!
Join us for this exciting day long exploration of modern tintypes and toy cameras with Jill Enfield! We’ll spend the first part of the day learning about tintypes and making plates in the darkroom. These plates, unlike the wet collodion tintype process, can be taken on location and used in the field far from a darkroom. Modern tintypes are very similar to the historic dry plate process; a short lived process introduced by Kodak in the late 1800s as a convenient alternative to wet plate photography. More here >>

2007 Review

4-9pm: Symposium Opening Reception
Rangos Ballroom, 2nd Floor University Center, Carnegie Mellon University
Check in from 4-7:00pm

The symposium officially begins at 5pm Thursday, May 29 with an informal work-sharing/portfolio review session. We have a large space on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University at which there will be tables for registered symposium attendees to spread out images, cameras, and other materials and equipment to share with other participants. This is a rare chance to see and discuss the exciting work you and your colleagues are making!

In addition to sharing your work and meeting other artists and photographers we’ll have quite a few vendors and manufacturers in attendance. They’ll each have a table at which they’ll be demonstrating their latest equipment and supplies and showing that they support explorations in alternative photography! Our friends from B&H Photo will be there with assorted goodies and symposium specials. We’ll be revealing the rest of our vendor roster over the coming weeks but it’s safe to say if they care about a heterogeneous future of photography they’ll be in attendance! Please note: This event is ONLY for registered symposium attendees. This was the most requested event of 2007. Don’t miss it!

France Scully Osterman

Serendipity and Exquisite Manipulation
A Special Opening Reception Artists’ Talk with France Scully Osterman
Rangos Ballroom, 2nd Floor University Center, Carnegie Mellon University
Time: 6:00pm

More than any other photographic process, wet-collodion enables artists to produce images that are completely hand-crafted, seducing them with painterly artifacts. In this talk France Scully Osterman will discuss the factors which influence and guide her work: process, lens, light, exposure and intent.

The artifacts inherent to collodion negatives are reminders that they are entirely hand-crafted. Within these artifacts lie distinct possibilities to contribute to the painterliness of the image. Collodion is to photography what watercolor is to painting -fast but requiring ‘exquisite manipulation’. Initially Osterman was drawn to the subtle artifacts of the process -as she was with painting- which serve as a distinctive signature of the artist…(read more >>)
