Join us for a free talk on the art of analogue photography with photographers Nadia Bseiso, Lamya Gargash, and Abdalla Kroosh in conversation with GPP director Mohamed Somji. Addressing topics from personal practice to top tips and essential rules for shooting film, this talk aims to break down misconceptions surrounding film photography and to strip away the mystery and skepticism that often accompany this eloquent medium in the digital age.
The talk will be followed by a 30-minute live demonstration on how to develop your own film and different development techniques available to photographers to achieve unique effects in their final images.
Artists will be available following the talk for questions.
