Discover the power of portraits and landscapes using historic photographic methods. We will use large-format cameras (think Ansel Adams) and make homemade cameras to photograph each other and the unique Atlanta architecture and landscape. We will use photo paper instead of film to create large 4 x 5 negatives that yield amazingly sharp images and can be printed very large without losing detail. Participants will also develop negatives in a low-tech darkroom (dark cabin). No experience necessary.
ABOUT JONATHAN SADLER Jonathan Sadler recently relocated to Boise from Chicago, Illinois where he still maintains a studio with his collaborative partner, Luke Batten. Jonathan’s collaboration goes by the name New Catalogue. Using a methodology that both parallels and gently ridicules the concept of stock photo agencies, New Catalogue creates photographs that tap into popular culture while expanding on traditional photographic genres. Jonathan has shown nationally and internationally at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, The Indianapolis Museum of Art and the National Gallery in Prague, Czech Republic among others. His work is included in the permanent collections of many major museums. Jonathan teaches all levels of Photography at Boise State University.
