Algaetype - Workshop pre-research

The next days, Kristof Vrancken, professor and experimental photographer, is in residency at Atelier LUMA. Specialist of the anthotype process—which consists in creating a picture from photosensitive components present in some plants—he came to experiment it with a brand new resource: algae.

During this week, not only he harvested the algae, created emulsions and extracted their pigments prior to the development of the photographs, he also discovered the territory of Camargue: its issues, resources and landscapes.

The workshop Algaetype : materializing the landscapes of Camargue through organic photography will take place from the 9th till the 12th of July 2018. It is free on registration at the following address info@atelier-luma.or
