Studio #4 / Algaetype - Materialize the Camargue territory through organic photography
Atelier Luma, Arles - France
The National School of Photography, Arles, and Atelier Luma invite you to take part in the Algaetype photography workshop. Created by Kristof Vrancken, the Algaetype experimental photography process uses algae to design paper and extract pigments. Over the course of 4 days, you'll be invited to discover and collect the territory's algae, to experiment with photography and capture the beauty of the Camargue landscapes, to understand the issues at stake in the territory and to produce innovative biomaterials.
This workshop will be supervised by Kristof Vrancken, experimental photography teacher and researcher at LUCA School of Arts, and Diane Trouillet, multi-disciplinary and experimental artist. The Anthropocene and the promotion of eco-responsible resources are central to both their research.
