Rhiannon Adam Polaroid Workshop
Saturday, Oct 5, 2019
1:00pm – 1:45pm
Rhiannon Adam was born in Co. Cork, Ireland and lives and works in London. She studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London), and the University of Cambridge. Her work is primarily concerned with myth, nostalgia and the passage of time. In 2015, Adam spent 3 months on Pitcairn Island, creating a documentary photography project which will be on show at HIP festival 2019. Her book, Polaroid: The Missing Manual, The Complete Creative Guide, is published by Thames and Hudson.
Rhiannon Adam leads this session, exploring some of the ways (including emulsion lifting) in which the unique chemistry of the Polaroid photograph can be manipulated to become a unique piece of art.
In addition, participants will also gain an insight into the various incarnations of the instant camera and its evolving film chemistry, from the emergence of peel-apart cameras in the 1960s to the SX-70 cameras of the 70s, right through to recent analogue/digital hybrid cameras.
Participants are encouraged to bring along their own equipment if they have questions about its operation.
