What you'll do
Developing a picture in a darkroom is a timeless experience that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. There is a feeling you get when you first see an image appear on a once blank sheet of photo paper that is so magical. In this workshop go beyond the digital world and step back in time to where the origins of photography began. Discover a new skill as I introduce you to the photographic process and participate in making an actual black and white photograph from images stored in your IPhone or smartphone. I will guide you step by step in my darkroom how to hand print like a master photographer. Watch your image come to life right before your very eyes. Take back apart of Rome that defines your experience, a memory to last a lifetime. “You don't take a photograph, you make it!" Ansel Adam
I relocated to Rome to pursue my career as a freelance photographer. I earned a BFA in Photography in New York City, where I mastered my skills in black and white printing for over 30 years. I continue to shoot in film and have dedicated myself to the origins of the photographic process. I exhibit my silver gelatin prints in galleries in New York, Los Angeles and abroad. As a custodian to analog techniques, my passion is to preserve old world traditions allowing me to cultivate this darkroom experience with you.
