A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light. (Wikipedia)

Photographs intend to document a version of reality outside of the mind. Photograms can express an abstract version of reality existing inside the mind. This two hour workshop will focus on teasing the imagination, exploring a collaboration with the elements, and playing within the picture plane. We will uncover the cameraless photographic process of making photograms and create original abstract imagery with everyday objects. Photographic paper and chemistry will be provided as well as various objects, but feel free to bring your own items to imprint. Class price includes instruction & a $20 supply fee.

I am a fine art photographer and educator living in Philadelphia, PA. I received my Master of Fine Art with a concentration in photography from the University of Delaware, Newark, DE. Since then, I have taught introductory and intermediate digital photography courses at Salem Community College, Carney’s Point, NJ, the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Philadelphia, PA, and Saint Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, PA where I was awarded from the Adjunct Faculty Development fund in 2016. Additionally, I have led photography workshops at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Rowan University, and The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, Philadelphia, PA. My personal photography work continues to be exhibited and published nationally.
