Fee: $300 (covers all 4 days of the workshop, and 10 free darkroom hours valued at $150 are included with class registration)

The Bronx Documentary Center is pleased to announce the second in a series of six classes leading to a Salon Exhibition in June a series of B&W Fine Print workshops given by Brian Young, a Master Printer of Gelatin Silver B&W which over an eight month period would culminate in a Salon exhibition of students’ work at the BDC. Students are free to follow any number of workshops as they develop and refine the content of their work in finely executed gelatin silver prints. The number of prints from students (TBD) will be in proportion to their participation in the successive workshops but with every enrolled student having representation of their work in the Salon exhibition and with space permitting.

As this long term printing project progresses, there can be possible portfolio reviews/ critiques by invited professionals, editing of images workshop for publication/ portfolio and a practical workshop on mat cutting for gallery presentation. A possible proposal for a Zine publication is also being considered but dependent on participation. The success of such an undertaking rests with the participants and their enthusiasm to show their work to the public.

The goal of such a project is to allow talented photographers, who are devoted to analog film based photography, the opportunity let their work speak to the unique beauty of this medium, a educational photographic experience which the Bronx Documentary Center advocates within our ever present digital experience.
