Fotofest Workshop DETAILS

From the organizer:

Join Keliy Anderson-Staley for an artist talk and image-making workshop in conjunction with the exhibition Contact: Making Images Using the Cyanotype Process. Anderson-Staley will discuss her use of historical photographic processes to create photographic works that explore the relationships between portraiture, identity, and memory. At the center of Anderson-Staley’s practice is the exploration of the role that photographic-technology plays in the construction of personhood, agency, and identity. Her work is often presented in exhibitions in a salon-style hang with only the name of her sitter and date of exposure offered to the audience for context. The result is a collection of timeless images that resists classification in the context of identity politics.

Following Anderson-Staley’s talk, guests are invited to use provided materials including digital negatives, plants, and paper to create unique cyanotype prints inspired by Anderson-Staley’s practice. The workshop is free and open to the public, and all materials are provided. Guests are welcome to bring their own natural materials to use during the workshop.
