The exhibition and workshop are participating in the 2019 Capture Photography Festival and supported by London Drugs Printing Grant.

In this workshop, the lumenprint (photograms made without a camera) image making process will be explained and demonstrated. Phyllis Schwartz explains, “In this hands-on workshop, participants will make photograms of plant materials, and discover how they leave marks and traces on photosensitive paper; the work will look like colourful x-rays.” There will be an opportunity to participate in the entire process beginning with gathering materials, composing two images and developing two prints (8 x 10 inches).

The workshop extends the concept of analogue photography as the pencil of nature. Schwartz rediscovered this process while studying the Victorian botanists who sought a method of documenting their fieldwork. Lumen Prints are both photographic and x-ray like, producing both documentation of nature and artistic renderings of botanical specimens.

Phyllis Schwartz is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, ceramics and publishing based in Vancouver, Canada. Her work at Emily Carr University consolidated these interests with a concentration in photography. She was the recipient of the Canon Photography Award. As a visual artist, she seeks detail, texture, and poetic elements. She uses photography to investigate and record what eludes the eye. Her photography has been exhibited and published across Canada and internationally; her works are in both public and private collections.

This workshop is presented in conjunction with exhibition Formulation of Time – Photography by Phyllis Schwartz, Edward Peck, Desirée Patterson and Sand Wan, which is on view from April 6 – 30, 2019 Monday - Friday 10am-5pm weekends by appointment. Also open during Art! Vancouver on the weekend of April 27 - 28, 10am-5pm.
