In this innovative, two part photography course, participants will explore the basics of plant-based analogue photography. You will learn the methods of a completely unique technique in darkroom photography – created and refined by Joonas Ahtikallio.

You can participate without completing the first class. No darkroom experience is needed, however a basic understanding of analogue photography would help, but the teacher can adjust to student’s levels.

Under his guidance you will create beautiful black and white photographs using historical processes, with an ecological twist – his sustainable developer – consisting of various photo-sensitive plants, vitamin C and soda. The concept of the course is to further understand the relationship between man and nature, and investigate the connection between art and nature. The ​​course is suitable for photographers from different backgrounds, the basics of darkroom work is useful but not necessary.

In the continuation class different exposure we will delve deeper in the plant developing. We work with the results from the first course and refine developers. In the course we will also work with the community garden’s plants from the previous session.

Ecological Darkroom Developing continuation course takes place:

  • 23. september 2023 kell 14:00 – 18:00
  • 24. september 2023 kell 11:00 – 15:00
