Join environmental artist Scott Hunter for an introduction to using plant-based developers to process photographic film.
Scott Hunter is an environmental artist and photographer using experimental photography to explore the rich biodiversity of post-industrial sites. His Darkroom Ecology project explores nature-based solutions to harmful chemicals used in analogue photography.
In this session, Scott will provide an artist talk introducing his recent project at Bandeath Munitions Depot, guidance on how to forage responsibly, and a demonstration on developing black and white film sustainably using organic matter such as seaweed.
In addition, he proposes replacing silver-containing fixers with salt water, offering a non-toxic alternative to the disposal of heavy metals in water systems.
This workshop will provide a basic understanding of eco-processing to allow you to experiment further and develop your recipes.
This workshop is suitable for adults with a keen interest in analogue photography.
